Glue – Ain’t Nothing Promised About Tomorrow Lyrics

[Intro]
That's right
Without the sunshine
Without the sunshine, your garden won't grow
Without the sunshine, your garden can't   grow
Without   the sunshine, your   garden can't grow
Without the sunshine, your   garden can't grow
Without that sunshine, your garden can't grow, right? Check it out
[Verse 1]
I said the devil's made to trick us
Jesus was made to keep us right
Ain't nothing promised 'bout tomorrow
So we better leave town tonight
If the guitar don't get us, then I'm sure that organ will
And you can hear the dead singing, if you stand real still
Half the street lamps are burnt out
And they're the map leading us home
And half the sidewalks are broken
And that's been all we've known
Now the bus won't stop for me
Knows I'm headed for trouble
And i could hitchhike my way, but the road knows me way too well
Now the sunshine i was talking about, it don't need a job like me
And, uh, the world depends on that light so everybody here can see
Now I've been trying to get out of this town with a blind guide and some spare change
And i know my background is messy, but lord I'm set in my ways
I don't regret the path that I'm on, and i got mistakes just like the rest
And, uh, i've seen these hands when they were rich, and i wasn't impressed
[Verse 2]
The devil was made to trick us
God is there to keep us right
Ain't nothing promised about tomorrow
So we better leave town tonight
If the guitar doesn't get us then for sure the bass will
Got a head full worry and mouth full of pills
Lord i wasn't made to wear a prison number
I wasn't made to own a fancy car
You gave me 2 feet, to walk till I'm gone
I've been getting around on the rails
Sailing around your big world
Praising your name in case they haven't heard
My vices are simple lord, since i was a child
I need soul in that rhythm and my people to be wild
Trouble knows my every move
Follows me into every bed i find
I'm trying to teach the devil to keep his hands off mine
The law wasn't made for drifters
It can't understood how we move
Glide over highways, I've got nothing but time to lose
This town has gone crooked, i can't straighten it out
Every woman is a siren, every good man is down
I don't regret this path, but i got mistakes like the rest
I've seen these hands dirt poor, and i wasn't impressed
[Verse 3]
The devil was made to trick us
The holy spirit keeps us right
Ain't nothing promised about tomorrow
So we better leave town tonight
If the guitar doesn't get us then sure the drums will
Lord give me something, I've got nothing but time to kill
A stomp and clap is all we need
A shock to the system to plant the seed
Up from the roots comes a giant tree
Lord, let it burn so we can hear you scream
We'll play, all day, keep moving the feet
Shuffle while you struggle to feel the beat
We gotta work, gotta work for every penny we get
Spend it on tithes, keep my pockets in check
Holy spirit, i know you hear it, i scream at the ceiling
Barely breathing, looking for a sign
Looking for a reason, give drive, give me feeling
Edge of life, staring down, at a future and a past
One makes me fly, one makes me crash
City nights find a righteous man left in the cold
Bitter fights bind egos like greed will always do to gold
I never regretted this path, but i got mistakes like the rest
I've seen Jesus's hands bleed and finally was impressed
