The sun burns down leaving God's bright stamp
On Peach Branch Horse and Bible Camp
Where we're splashing in the water, joined in song
Swimming with the Spirit the whole day long

I'm a teen for God

God is watching, teen for God
God is watching, teen for God

The girls have looks and the girls have rules
They came here from their Bible schools
They can make you pay attention to the way you dress and eat
Make you trip over your own two feet and

They kneel down on their towels at night
Their nightgowns glow with a Holy light
And we pray for the sinners and their drunken car wrecks
And vow that I'll never get high and have sex

I'm a teen for God

God is watching, teen for God
God is watching, teen for God

And God made every leaf on every tree
Each grain of sand, God has a plan
For what we're meant to be
I gotta wait for God

Dear Lord, I plan each day
The things I will not do or say
But I'm driven by a passion, is it only there to tame?
It fills my heart and it calls my name and

This world that you made for us
I know, I know, is dangerous
So I ride a lot of horses, never even swear
Sorta like praying, I'm just not there

Oh God

God is watching, oh God
God is watching

But God made love, God made the rivers run
And cowboy boots and bathing suits
And the boy's skin dries in the sun
You gotta help me, God

Help me know four years from now
I won't believe in You anyhow
And I'll mope around the campus and I'll feel betrayed
All those guilty summers, I stayed

But then I'll laugh that I fell for the lure
Of the pain of desire to feel so pure
And I'll bear all the burdens of my little daily crimes
Wish I had a God for such cynical times far from today

But for now, I'm a sacred vessel, rip me open
I spread Your word like a milkweed pod
I'm a radio station, Your Holy transmission
Even more, like a lightning rod

I'm a lightning rod, a teen for God
Teen for God

God is watching, teen for God
God is watching, I'm a teen for God
