I thought that we'd be further along by now
I can't remember how
We stumbled to this place
I loved you like a long lost brother
On a bad day maybe I thought, why bother
I've seldom seen so much anger in a face
I wanna do better
I wanna try harder
I wanna believe down to the letter
Jesus and Mary
Can you carry us across this ocean
Into the arms of forgiveness?
I don't mean to laugh out loud
I'm trying to come clean, trying to shed my doubt
Maybe I should just keep my big mouth shut
More often than not when it comes to you
You want whatever's not in front of you
Deep down I know this includes me too
I wanna do better
I wanna try harder
I wanna believe down to the letter
Jesus and Mary
Can you carry us across this ocean
Into the arms of forgiveness?
So tell me your troubles, let your pain rain down
I know my job, I've been around
I invest in the mess, I'm a low cost dumping ground
Trouble is I'm so exhausted
The plot, you see, I think I've lost it
I need the grace to find what can't be found
I wanna do better
I wanna try harder
I wanna believe down to the letter
Jesus and Mary
Can you carry us across this ocean
Into the arms of forgiveness?
Jesus and Mary
Come and carry us across this ocean
Into the arms of forgiveness
