    "Sweet Jesus" Lyrics

    James Yorkston

    As soon as we get a fighting chance we could lose ourselves
    amongst the crowd my love
    And you must know that I'm up for trying,
    forgetting all this civilising row
    And all these country miles are nothing, compared to taking a chance
    And all these country miles are nothing,
    lady can't you read between the lines?

    Because I found love and a thousand answers to the
    trapped little ghosts of a thousand glasses
    I've been drinking less and sleep comes to me,
    if this is life touch wood it's easy

    And you look so cosmopolitan like this is France or this is London town
    Well let them go and pierce their features,
    we'll just stay and comb the beaches around

    And how you sang "bold reynardine" as the snow it glazed outside and around
    And was is wrong to pray for more, if it kept you safe ashore in my arms?
    And how we ended so close together,
    with all that space around the fire my love
    And just for you this one little line,
    I loved being taken under your arm my love

    We could fairly watch the fur fly, we could play at cat and mouse
    I'm sure we've got Sweet Jesus on our side
    As I believe in fate and you're a sucker for the stars
    I'm sure we've got Sweet Jesus on our side,
    singing Sweet Sweet Jesus when will she be mine?
