skyblew – purple iris lyrics

Loading...

chorus:
it’s like, ‘where’s faith when you need it?’
hard believing when you can’t even see it
preachers say keep the faith
but they ain’t seein’ god so of course he the person that they blame
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it
faith’s starting to seem real ludicrous
but hope do exist, purple iris

verse 1:
picture this: a man of the lord
a minister, only using the bible as his sword
got two little girls, one born with cancer
every night he prays to the lord for an answer
please heal her, don’t let it k!ll her
years going by, she only gettin’ iller, things gettin’ realer
but he prays and he prays for days
they said god works in mysterious ways
little by little his faith sways
looking at the congregation, his heart race
the next day, she p-ssed out of cl-ss
rushed her to the hospital, fearing it’s her last breath
he hit his knees, ‘god, please!
if you there, take away this disease’
started not to believe but doctors made him yield
’sir, it’s a miracle, your daughter’s fully healed’

chorus:
it’s like, ‘where’s faith when you need it?’
hard believing when you can’t even see it
preachers say keep the faith
but they ain’t seein’ god so of course he the person that they blame
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it
faith’s starting to seem real ludicrous
but hope do exist, purple iris

verse 2:
now the same girl’s older
grew up in the church, kept god on her shoulder
graduated high school to a much colder
place in the world, keep faith dad told her
everyday, her friends would surround her
short skirts, makeup, constantly they hound her
‘cause she the clean one, preacher’s daughter
virgin, living off of everything he taught her
but they lifestyle affected her
threw away the principles that at one time protected her
started clubbin’, s-xin’ no lovin’
powder room for the c-ke, daddy’s little m-ffin
ain’t been to church in a few years
parents still praying for her while they spew tears
but it became clear that they precious little girl was gone and never coming home

chorus:
it’s like, ‘where’s faith when you need it?’
hard believing when you can’t even see it
preachers say keep the faith
but they ain’t seein’ god so of course he the person that they blame
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it
faith’s starting to seem real ludicrous
but hope do exist, purple iris

verse 3:
the next time they saw her, she was pale
eyes dilated, off the back they could tell it was drugs
dad felt his heart start to descend
‘god, what i do? i was faithful, barely sinned
i prayed and i prayed, her life yeah you saved
but at what cost? losing her in another way?’
slowly walked away, reach p-ssed by
church didn’t see him, started to ask why
so did he, started questioning if god’s real
‘what’s the deal? why k!ll what you just healed?’
but his wife told him, ‘you gotta have faith
don’t be a hypocrite, live what you say’
the next sunday he was back at the altar
faith restored believing that he ain’t fully lost her
and as he started to preach, the church doors opened wide and there was his daughter walking inside

chorus:
it’s like, ‘where’s faith when you need it?’
hard believing when you can’t even see it
preachers say keep the faith
but they ain’t seein’ god so of course he the person that they blame
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it, faith
so they losin’ it
faith’s starting to seem real ludicrous
but hope do exist, purple iris
