Face

Three times last week someone invited me to church 

Guess I have that kind of face 

Three times last week someone asked me if Iíd like to buy a watch 

Guess I have that kind of face 

Yes I have that kind of face

 

Donít mean to sound unkind / but the hours that I keep are mine 

In spite of all this darkness I could surely use your watch sometimes 

Donít mean to come off odd / But I am frightened by your god 

In spite of all this darkness / I could surely use your god sometimes 

 

Three times last week someone offered me personal protection 

A nickel plate erection / Guess I have that kind of face 

Donít mean to spoil your fun / I donít like to play with guns 

Iím grateful for the darkness / I donít ever want to shoot no one

 

You see Iím black and blue / Itís old for me but news to you 

Iím grateful for the darkness  / and I surely use my soul sometimes

 

 

Guess I have that kind of face 

Three times last week / three times this week / same time next week 

Guess I have that kind of face
