Good Shepherd

GOOD SHEPHERD (J Neo Marvin)

You’re so happy to be here
So glad to be just where you are
When you know that he’s around
You can feel his love within
He’s so good and wise and strong
And he shows you right from wrong
And you really love him so
And you really love him so

Through your tears you see his face
He looks like Jesus in the dark
Now he’s looking down at you
At the way you fold your arms
And he slaps your face again
You need more respect for him
And you clasp your hands in prayer
And you want him to approve
So you giggle and you smile
And you’re his little girl again
And you really love him so
And you really love him so.

He has such beautiful eyes
Eyes that stare into your face
Eyes that peer into your mind
Eyes that leer into your soul
You are one of many wives
And you live up in the hills
In the beautiful big trees
It’s a happy place to be
And you stumble into town
Begging tourists for their change
And your faces look so blank
And your faces look so pale

You want to leave but you want to stay
It gets too heavy sometimes
When he orders you to do
Things you don’t quite understand
But when you see a chance to run
You fall down and cry instead
And you really love him so
And you really love him so.

Mom and Dad left you alone
They never paid you any mind
And they still don’t realize
Why you don’t write anymore
‘Cause he keeps you up all night
He taught you how to fire a gun
And he gives you everything
Everything that you deserve
But he’s gentle and he’s kind
He’s a god on earth for you
And you really love him so
And you really love him so.
