Lyrics

The halo never fit. My head was never hallowed.
The praises on my lips were getting hard to swallow.
Hell was dark and broke my heart, and heaven was too bright.
But I’m alright where we are, down on earth tonight.

I roll with happy folks, and I’m all done pretending.
I curse and—holy smokes—it hasn’t been my ending.
I’ve got a taste of love’s embrace, and though it’s not divine
It saves me, and I’ll stay down to earth tonight.

I’m sorry for the times I judged you and trying to be someone I’m not.
I hope it isn’t too late to love you and leave the divination up to God.

The high horse had a way of running off without me.
I’m strolling slow these days with your arm wrapped around me.
We work and sweat and wash and then we drink unholy wine.
There’s glory to no end down on earth tonight.

I’m sorry for how long that it’s taken to bow my head and give in to my bones.
I hope it isn’t too late to awaken to the mud and blood and beauty of my home.

It seems so long ago, I used to be above it.
The little life below. Oh how I’ve come to love it.
Let’s lay awhile in human style, leave heaven to the sky.
Oh God I’m flying high. I’m down to earth tonight.
Oh God I’m flying high. I’m down to earth tonight.
