righteous love lyrics – joan osborne

righteous love

i was a troubled soul
i had a worried mind
drifting from place to place
i was the restless kind
right there in front to me
bright as the light of day
you saw a broken girl
you loved me anyway

and if i sprouted wings
i would not be amazed
cause faith is a mystery that
rocks me for days and days and day and
i could be in the street
i could be on a train
or struck in some doorway down
in the pouring rain
now there is not one place
that doesn’t feel like home
no matter where i go
i know i’m not alone

[chorus:]
i’ve never been so sure of love

and if i sprouted wings
i would not be amazed
cause faith is a mystery that
rocks me for days and days and day
oh you can ask me once
and i will tell you twice
no one’s convincing me
this isn’t paradise
and if i cause you pain
i’d only hurt myself
cause we have a righteous love
i feel for on one else

[chorus:]
i’ve never been so sure of love
