Life Left Him There

Availble on: Down With Wilco(A Tragedy In Three Halfs)
Written by: McCaughey
There was a kind and gentle soul
And he was tied up to a chair
Still he loved and never lost
Although life left him there
And when he moaned the timbers shook
The floor beneath him too
And plaster fell on his bare head
The fire was bright and blue

"I know we're going to meet you;
I know we're going to meet you there.
I know we're going to meet you somewhere."
Whatever debts are paid in full,
Receive me now, he cried.

And as the walls came crackling down
Believers watched outside
O lamb of God, was ever pain
Was ever doubt so rare?
And still he loved and never lost
Although life left him there.
