The Lyrics

True - friends died in a car accident because they were drunk. Mom died from cigarettes. Sister was anorexic.
Lord,
what can I do
with my stupid friends?
They always embarass
themselves in the end
They get sloshed
they won't stop
this destructive trend
Oh Lord,
what can I do
with my stupid friends?

Oh, Lord
can you tell me
how I can save Mom?
She smokes like a chimmney
I've tried to be calm
She treats her tobacco
as if it's a balm
Oh, Lord
can you tell me
how I can save Mom?

Oh, Lord
can you help me?
My sister won't eat
She thinks she is heavy
and though she is neat
she's just skin and bones
she has no real meat
Oh Lord
can you help me?
My sister won't eat.

Oh, Lord
how I realize
it's all up to You
I've done all that I can
I'm so glad You knew
I leave them in Your hands
stick to them like glue
Oh, Lord
how I realize
it's all up to You.
(C)2003, Valerie Duffy.
