 hey, jesus, it's me.        
 i don't usually talk to you.     
 but my baby's gonna leave me, and there's something you must do.

i am not your faithful servant, I hang around
 sometimes with a bunch of your black sheep, 
but if you make my baby stay, i'll make it up to you
 ItŐs a promise I will keep.                  

hey jesus, it's me.
I'm the one who talked to you yesterday
Asked you please, please for a favor.
But my baby's gone away.
went away anyway
and i don't really think its fair.
you've got the power to make us all believe in you.
and then we call you in despair,
and you don't come through.

hey jesus, it's me, I'm sorry.
I don't remember all I said.
I had a few, no, too many
and they went straight to my head.
Made me feel like i could argue with god.
but you know, it's easy for you.
you got friends all over the world.
you had the whole world waiting for your birth.
but now i ain't got nobody

 I don't know what my life's worth.

i'm not gonna call you anymore.
I'm sure you've got a million things to do.
all i was trying to do was to get through to you,
get through to you.
Ôcause when i die and i get up to your doors,
i don't even know if you're gonna let me in the place.
how come i gotta die to get a chance to talk to you
 face to face?
