Beautiful, simple song that should've been up here a while ago.


         C                     Em
I have a friend, swear she saw Jesus
           Am             F
Hovering above her lonely bed
            C                   G
She said it changed her life forever
F          G        C
"Whatever works" I said

I sit with her changing channels
It's so hard to concentrate
I laugh at her, but I'm pretty sure
She's having a better day

          F          C                    F       C
So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
    F          Em      Am       F        G       C
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
          F            C          F               C
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
F           G          Em       Am  F      G       C
To see real tears that seem sincere once before I die

The other night I talked to an old flame
Who finally said why he moved on
He said I didn't have faith in anything
I knew he wasn't wrong

I saw two lovers in the park
With that dreamy look of lust in their eyes
The whole world smiled as they passed by
They just make me mad

So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
Take this jaded heart, blow it all apart, once before I die

Em                  F      G                    Am
I'll get down on my knees, something I don't believe
Em               F           G
Somebody help me please, I'm starting to repeat myself
    G
I'm starting to repeat myself

So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
I'd love to see a miracle once before I die
Once before I die
