Bob Dylan's
Bob Dylan and Suze

God Knows

God knows you ain't pretty,

God knows it's true.

God knows there ain't anybody

Ever gonna take the place of you.


God knows it's a struggle,

God knows it's a crime,

God knows there's gonna be no more water

But fire next time.


Bridge #1:

God didn't call it treason,

God didn't call it wrong,

It was supposed to last a season

But it's been so strong for so long.


God knows it's fragile,

God knows everything,

God knows it could snap apart right now

Just like putting scissors to a string.


Bridge #2:

God knows it's terrifying,

God sees it all unfold,

There's a million reasons for you to be crying

You been so bold and so cold.


God knows that when you see it,

God knows you've got to weep,

God knows the secrets of your heart,

He'll tell them to you when you're asleep.


God knows there's a river,

God knows how to make it flow,

God knows you ain't gonna be taking

Nothing with you when you go.


God knows there's a purpose,

God knows there's a chance,

God knows you can rise above the darkest hour

Of any circumstance.


God knows there's a heaven,

God knows it's out of sight,

God knows we can get all the way from here to there

Even if we've got to walk a million miles by candlelight.
