#18 The Blessing Song

God bless the collector who's calling
God bless the gathering weather
God bless the hole I might fall in
if I can't pull myself together

God bless the folks who might pass me by
should I mislay a dollar or three,
and when I'm so poor that I can't even pray,
God...bless...me

God bless the friends who have loved me
God bless the hearts I have broken
God bless the ways they might judge me
God bless the things left unspoken

and God bless the miles of stories between us
whose endings I might never see,
and when I'm so sorry that I can't even speak,
God...bless...me

'Cause what good is a person who's waitin' on blessings
and bitter as bergamot tea?
Impatient, bewildered, entitled, and worried...
what good is she? She's no good to me.

So God bless the bridges I'm building
and God bless the mouths at my table
and God bless the roaches I'm killing
God bless my willing and able

and God bless my mother, and God bless my father,
without them don't know where I'd be.
And when I'm so tired that I can't even sleep,
God...bless...me.
