Paul Colman Album: Let It Go Track: Last Night in America
Last Night in America Lyrics
I'm afraid to turn my TV on And I'm hoping what they said is wrong Can I just live my lifetime here and then move on? I've had a million conversations about Who is right and who is wrong And how would Jesus want for us to carry on I'm praying for God's will but secretly wanting Riches and blessings to pour in my hands Is this my last night in America?
My tendency is to run away And try to keep my family safe But tell me how to hide away from all this hate? The dominoes that we see fall Were set in motion long ago Fear became a flower and the garden grows I'm seeing the irony, the battle inside of me You brought me peace now I'm at war with the world Tell me is there some way out Tell me that I'm not alone Show me the mystery oh cornerstone Is this my last night in America?
Is this my last night in America? Or is it my last moment anywhere? Our breath is a vapour that's lost in the air Is this my last night in America?
Well I've read about a God of war And painted blood from door to door Canonized in scripture and in black and white And I've read about my Jesus Christ And I've received His sacrifice But is it turn the other cheek or is it stand and fight? 'Cause I'm just a simple pilgrim I'm not a man with wisdom What do I do when there's a thief at my door? Do I resist him or in silence assist him? What seemed right isn't clear anymore Is it the fall of a nation or the great tribulation The eve of invasion or the book of revelation Well I'll wear my freedom as an invitation To the God of creation whose keeping the score Is this my last night in America? Is this my last night in America? Is this my last night in America?
