They told me God was everywhere
when I was just a kid
but late at night,inside my room
it seemed he often hid

I couldn't find him any where
no matter where I looked
when dad came in to say good night
the phone was off the hook

I called and called,I wanted help
I layed in bed and prayed
I knew he'd been there earlier
How come he hadn't stayed?

And after dad had left my room
I'd cry inside my closet
Even God skipped out on me
And stole my soul's deposit

So here's to all the little boys,
The sandman takes you where,
You'll be sleepin' with a pillowman,
On the nickel over there.

Blurry,

I remember that feeling too. I would stand in our church in front of this huge (to me) picture of Jesus sitting under a tree surrounded by a throng of happy safe kids. I would look at that and wonder, "Why not me too?"

Much love,
Larry
