Just like every cross you ever carried, every badge you ever wore
Every vow you've ever taken, every oath you ever swore
Every kiss you've ever stolen, every moment that you waste
Everything you ever loved and all you've come to hate

It's a great temptation in your hour of need
But there's no shortcut to salvation
Searchin' for the kingdom key

Just like every vision you neglected, every dream you left to die
Every hope that you rejected, every truth that was a lie
Every road you ever traveled, everyone you turned away
Everything you ever loved and all that you betrayed

It's a great temptation in your hour of need
But there's no shortcut to salvation
Searchin' for the kingdom key

And the light before him was all that he could see
Like fingerprints on the hands of glory wrapped 'round the rosary
His love is like a chain that would not set him free, would not set him free
Lonely soul on a mission of mercy, hey yeah

Just like every cross you ever carried, every badge you ever wore
Every vow you've ever taken, every oath you ever swore
Everything you ever loved and all you've come to hate

It's a great temptation in your hour of need
But there's no shortcut to salvation
Searchin' for the kingdom key

It's a great temptation in your hour of need
But there's no shortcut to salvation
Searchin' for the kingdom key, hey yeah
