Hey Jesus, it's me
I don't usually talk to you
But my baby's gonna leave me
And there's something you must do

And I am not your faithful servant
I hang around sometimes with a bunch of your black sheep
But if you make my baby stay, I'll make it up to you
It's a promise I'll keep

Hey Jesus, it's me
I'm the one who talked to you yesterday
I asked you please, please for a favor but my baby's gone away
Went away, anyway

And I don't really think it's fair
You've got the power to make us all believe in you
And then we call you in our despair
And you don't come through

Hey Jesus, it's me, I'm sorry
I don't remember all I said
I had a few, no, too many and they went straight to my head
And made me feel like I could argue with God

But you know it's easy for you
You got friends all over the world
You had the whole world waiting for your birth
But now I ain't got nobody, I don't know what my life's worth

I'm not gonna call on you any more
I'm sure you've got a million things to do
All I was trying to do was to get through to you
Get through to you

'Cause when I die and I get up to your doors
I don't even know if you're gonna let me in the place
How come I gotta die to get a chance to talk to you
Face to face
