lyrics

Song of Saints and Sinners
© 2006 Jason Paul Johnston
(Amazing Grace lyrics - John Newton)

I scar my knees again
My neck is sorely bent
Not from a pious posture
It's how my mouth can vent

Chorus:
It's a song of saints and sinners
Popes and convicts, pimps and priests
Of the lowest form of winner
Of the highest wretched beast

Not far from my best sin
It's crouching at the door
It calls my name, knows my shoe size
It’s got 20 new styles, it just picked up from the store

Bridge:
I'm falling now – and I can't flap my arms again
I'll hit the ground – if you don't pull me back...

Chorus

(Amazing Grace - How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind but now I see)
