When your first love got stolen away
You took God’s name in vain
After you lost your very best friend
You cursed Him again and again
Pre
All that wrong thinkin I've been there
Angry as hell at the Man Upstairs
Ch
But If life gives you lemons
Not peaches
Make meringue pie with Jesus
Your words are like skippin stones
Headin for the Holy Ghost
Try out the 11th Commandment
Cuz one day you'll be leaving
And don't throw rocks at heaven
v2
Some days I get to talking trash
Fall from grace and land on my ass
Stop believing in Creation
And start showing the devil my appreciation
Pre
But every time I close my eyes and say a prayer
Damned if the Lord don’t answer it, I swear
Ch
But If life gives me lemons
Not peaches
I'll make meringue pie with Jesus
My words are like skippin stones
Headin for the Holy Ghost
I'll try out the 11th Commandment
Cuz one day I'll be leaving
And don't throw rocks at heaven

Bridge
The Lord’s house is a glass ceiling
What goes up must come down
Watch that name calling going around
Ch
And If life gives us lemons
Not peaches
Will make meringue pie with Jesus
Our words are like skippin stones
Headin for the Holy Ghost
Will try out the 11th Commandment
Cuz one day will be leaving
Don't throw rocks
And don't throw rocks at heaven
Tag
When your first love got stolen away
You took God’s name in vain

Great Production! {blah blah blah... lol} wink

I gotta' say... I was really hoping this was going to be something upbeat and "plucky".

Oh well, you'll nail the next one grin

My opinion is that music and singing is really good. But.
Lyric could be smoother. Switching to upbeat and plucky won't solve that.

no biggie though....just like...I don't no what 11th commandment is for example...like that.

I'm lost on plucky guys .

What is the 11 commandment in the Bible?. The 11th is used on a lot of things , But since its a Jesus song

The 11th Commandment has already been given in the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus was asked, “Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law?” His response, “Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and all thy soul, and all thy mind.” This is the same as the first commandment of having only one God.

21 thousand members on this site ? amazing , Maybe they gave up

"I only talk to God when I need a favor
And I only pray when I ain't got a prayer
So, who the hell am I, who the hell am I
To expect a Savior, oh"

To my sensibilities, those are some of the best lyrics that I've seen in a long time.
(And I'm agnostic)

Need A Favor sung by Jelly Roll
Austin Nivarel / Jason De Ford / Joe Ragosta / Rob Ragosta

Your song seems like a re-write on the same theme, or maybe they re-wrote your song. wink

Nice song
