The Big Reprise

from My Shirt Looks Good On you

words and music by catie curtis

The church went down
And it didnt go gently
The burning steeple fell right on to Main Street
The old stained glass exploded
Pieces of Jesus at my feet
Molten broken Jesus at my feet

What kind of god would let this go?
What kind of spirit or holy ghost
What kind of god
What kind of friend
Did God let Jesus die again?
God let Jesus die again

In the name of faith and religion
How much trouble must we witness?
All the wars, hate and sickness
Cant somebodys god fix this?
Cant anybodys god fix this?

What kind of god would let this be?
What kind of spirit or trinity
What kind of god
What kind of friend
Did God let Jesus die again
God let Jesus die again

And it makes you wonder
Why bother to conceive
of anything greater than just what we can see
When all that we can see

Is the church went down
And it didnt go gently
The beloved steeple fell on to the tar
And so goes faith, Falling
Breaking me open in my heart
Breaking me open to my heart

What kind of god would stand by?
What kind of spirit or lord on high
What kind of god
What kind of friend
Maybe God let Jesus die
Cause we wouldnt get it otherwise
In canyons and in purple skies
Thats how we get to the big reprise
Not like he is some guy
Sitting up there thinking this is why
But maybe everything lets everything die
To make us all the more alive
To love one another
And be really present
Maybe God lets me and you
Moses and Muhammad too
God let Jesus die again, and again
