The air begins to feel a little thin As I start the car, and then I begin To add the miles piled up behind me I barely feel a smile deep inside me
And I begin to envy the headlights driving south I want to crack the door so I can just fall out But then I remember when you packed my car You reached in the back and buckled up your heart For me to drive away with I begin to understand why God died.
The demons sat there waiting on her porch It was a little dark so we held a makeshift torch And when my car was far out of sight He crept in her room and stayed there for the night
And then I felt chills in my bones The breath I saw was not my own I knew my skin that wrapped my frame Wasn't made to play this game And then I saw Him, torch in hand He laid it out, what He had planned And then I said I'll take the grave Please just send them all my way
I began to understand why God died
The air begins to feel a little thin As we're waiting for the morning to begin But for now you told me to hold this jar And when I looked inside I saw it held your heart For me to walk away with I began to understand why God died
