O Lord Blues (Psalm 88)

An aching blues for one of the most disturbing texts in the Bible.

                                                                                             

 

 

 

Why does it hurt like this? Why so slow? 
Why does it hurt like this? Why so low? 
Why does it hurt like this? Why so slow? 
Silver lining: Maybe there'll be no tomorrow 

O Lord! O Lord! Drowning in the thick, sick air 
O Lord! O Lord! Stench of death is everywhere O Lord! 

How could life go this way? How so wrong? 
How could life go this way? How so long? 
How could life go this way? How so wrong? 
You either left me or you were never here at all 

O Lord! O Lord! Lonely tears have been my prayer 
O Lord! O Lord! Can't see no-thing good no where, O Lord! 

Why does it hurt like this? Why so bad? 
Why does it hurt like this? I've been had 
Why does it hurt like this? Why so bad? 
I never thought anyone could feel this sad 

O Lord! O Lord! Darkness is my only friend 
O Lord! O Lord! Thanks a lot for nothing at the end
