Face Of God
written by John Hiatt

Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the face of God?
Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the face of God?
My eyes are blind from crying
Don't know how many more tears I've got

They say God is the devil
Until you look him in the eye
They say God is a devil
Until you look him in the eye
I can barely lift my head up
Sometimes I don't even wanna try

I'm not looking for love baby,
Looking high and low
Can anybody tell me, where did our love go?

How much suffering
Before you see the eyes of God?
'Cause I'm busted down to nothin'
It's a long dark road I'm on.

I just didn't show up yesterday
Like the rain come down from a cloud
I just didn't show up yesterday
Like the rain come down from a cloud
I was drawin' blood from the enemy
Long before my neighbors got proud

They gotta great big fancy car
They like to cut the grass just so
They gotta great big fancy car
They like to cut the grass just so
They're doin' cartwheels on their front lawn
I'm still coming through the kitchen door

Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the eyes of God?
Tell me how much more suffering
Before you see the eyes of God?
Now I've done my share baby
Why don't you show me what you got?
