make me pure lyrics – robbie williams

so i sing a song
to reel ’em in
it’s a song i sung before
and a song i’m gonna sing again
i mean every word
i don’t mean a single one of them
oh lord, make me pure
– but not yet

tell a joke
tell it twice
if no-one else is laughing then why am i
i split my sides both times and laugh till i cry
oh lord, please make me pure
– but not yet

i don’t have to try
i just dial it in
i’ve never found a job that for me was worth bothering
i got a ton of selfish genes and lazy bones
beneath this skin
oh lord, make me pure
– but not yet

smoking kills
s*x sells
i’ve got one hand in my pocket but the other one looks cool as h*ll
i know i’m gonna die so my revenge is living well
oh lord, make me pure
– but not yet

i stopped praying
so i hope this song will do
i wrote it all for you
i’m not perfect but you don’t mind that, do you?
i know you’re there to pull me through, aren’t you?

so i look for love
i like the search
and i’ll be standing for election all across the known universe
every president gets the country she deserves
oh lord, make me pure
– but not yet

and i’ve been seeing
somebody’s wife
she said she’d leave him for me and i said that wasn’t wise
you can’t lie to a liar because of all lies
oh lord, please make me pure
– not yet
