one of us

i randomly surfed onto sean's bloggie when this song played. some call it blasphemous, but it personifies(?) Him, puts Him in a somewhat different perspective, and may have helped some identify with Him in a way. "Nobody callin' on the phone, 'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome..." sadly touching. i pray too seldom, i'm easily distracted from Him by the less important things of the world, i'm mean, i'm bad, i'm a horribly sinful person. and i dare to hope He answers my prayers when i need Him. sigh.

this song brings back some memories of being in year 2, coming back from parkway on 15, dozing off on the bus with my discman blasting it repeatedly in my ears. i love the electric guitar right at the beginning, and then the drums. and if you've heard the original cd version, there's a little opera-sounding part right in front, before the electric guitar.

besides the CLS, i've also emailed annika, my german teacher. let's hope she'll reply quickly. and be really helpful. by the way, she told us yesterday that we address God with du, not Sie. that is so nice. :)


If God had a name
What would it be, and would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him and all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

Yeah, yeah- God is great
Yeah, yeah- God is good
Yeah, yeah- Yeah (x3)

What if God was one us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on a bus, trying to make his way home..


If God had a face
What would it looke like and would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to belive
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the Saints, and all the Prophets and..

Yeah, yeah- God is great
Yeah, yeah- God is good
Yeah, yeah- Yeah (x3)

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on a bus, trying to make his way home


Trying to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone..
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome...

Yeah, yeah- God is great
Yeah, yeah- God is good
Yeah, yeah- Yeah (x3)

What if God was one us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on a bus, trying to make his way home..

Trying to make his way home
Like a hole in Rolling Stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
