Sarah McLachlan Dear God Lyrics

Last updated: 09/10/2008 11:00:00 AM

Dear God,
Hope you got the letter and
I pray you can make it better down here.
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image,
See them starving on their feet
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
From God
I can't believe in you.

Dear God,
Sorry to disturb you, but
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear.
We all need a big reduction in the amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image,
See them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet

About God,
I can't believe in you.

Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
Did you make mankind after we made you?
And the devil too?!

Dear God,
Don't know if you noticed, but...
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book,
Us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,
And all the people that you made in your image,
Still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain't, and so do you

Dear God,
I can't believe in...
I don't believe in...

I won't believe in heaven and hell.
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.
You're always letting us humans down.
The wars you bring, the babes you drown.
Those lost at sea and never found,
And it's the same the whole world 'round.
The hurt I see helps to compound
That Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody's unholy hoax
And if you're up there you'd perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve.
If there's one thing I don't believe in.....

It's you.....
Dear God.

Amazeing Heart-Felt Lyrics! | Reviewer: Lexy | 4/5/2007

She starts off believeing and asking Dear God for help to change the world and make it a better place.
Yet when things dont go that way and the world becomes even worse she gets her doubts and as the world worsens her faith grows dimer and dimer untill one day she can finaly say she cant believe anymore.

This song is amazeing and it is wired that i can say that being a Christain. But this song many of us and relate to i mean there is times when i sometimes get doubts.

10/10 for this song for heart-felt meaningful lyrics.
