The Lyrics

I admire the Wallflowers' ability to write lyrics, including "God Says Nothing Back". They give us something to think about.
Seems like the world is full of clowns
Sweet rain from heaven still trickles down
Mercy from somewhere in heaven comes
overhead are angels
Dropping angel crumbs
In the morning, tomb has empty glow
God gave something back
And he told us so
He told us so

God blesses us but we don't see
Sun and the moon
mountains and prairie
Northern lights dancing in the sky
Birds go sailing past the glowing sun
He counted every hair that on us grows
God gives something back
And he tells us so
he tells us so

Visions go rising, very grim
Black and deep tomb they laid him in
He's written something on the wall
No hallucination, some are in his arms
But a hardened heart sometimes we own
God gives something back
And he told us so
He told us so

We're still here and sweating, every rung
Let those who see something
Now be speaking up!
Back over the hill there stands a cross
See the open grave
Where does Jesus walk
he bought us with his blood so we are told
Death sure gave him back
And he told us so
He told us so
