Don’t Pass Me By
I been a thief all my life. I stole from innocence all my life.
I never needed any of it. And now I feel the weight of it.
Only you can save me now. Only you can stop me now.
Please dear lord, don’t pass me by.
I been a politician all my life. I raised my stature every time.
I promised trust in play for strength. I lived it all with someone else’s dime.
Only you can forgive me now. Only you can purge my grift.
I ask for just this simple gift. Dear lord. Dear lord. Don’t pass me by
I been a preacher all my life. I spoke your words to other’s lives
I took the tithes they gave to you. I built a special roof for you.
I bought a luxury car for you. I drive it everyday myself.
I beg for more beneath that roof. I’ve kept it all myself for you.
Only you can forgive me now. Only you can recieve it now.
Please dear lord, don’t pass my by. Please don’t pass my by.
I been indifferent all my life. I never cared for people’s pain and strife.
The luck of others was never in play. I fail to listen to anything the say.
I was the one in my own world, single minded, self contained.
The pain of others, the blood the shame. I couldn’t let me heart get stained.
Only you can forgive me now. Only you can change my heart.
I’m begging please to hear this part. Oh lord. Dear lord, don’t pass me by.
I been a liar all my life. The search for truth was just a useless task
I haven’t told the truth in years. Don’t know if I can ever change.
My fans don’t know right from wrong. For that I wrote this very song.
Only you can restore my faith. Only you can turn my way.
Only you can make what I say, change the minds of all who pray.
Because of this you cannot pass. You must not pass me by.
I beg you now with honesty. Dear lord, please don’t pass me by.
Dear lord, please don’t pass me by. Do not pass me by.
Do not pass me by.
