God Draws Straight Lyrics

Off-Broadway musical
Here Lies Love the Musical - God Draws Straight Lyrics

As I left my house
As I walked out today
Thought I walked out' my marriage
Thought I walked out on grace

As the dawn it was breaking
At the end of the street
I didn't know what would happen
Didn't know what I'd see

I saw two transit buses
Block the road on our side
Saw a couple of joggers
Who chanced to run by

Saw some soldiers come out
And they mixed with the crowd
Tears came to my eyes
We're just walking around

Well there's so many people
Everybody is here
I saw the girls from the office
I saw those guys from the street

You might think you are lost
But then you will find
That god draws straight
But with crooked lines

I saw a matron in white
Her face lifted to heaven
I saw nuns on their knees
Some who were weeping

Saw a middle-aged man
And a government clerk
An Afro-mestizo
Held his rosary up

I saw nobody leave
I didn't feel fear or terror
It felt like a movie
Like the end of an era

Nobody got hurt
And nobody died
I'll remember this day
I'll remember this time

And there's so many people
Everybody is here
I saw the girls from the office
I saw those guys from the street

You might think you are lost
But then you will find
That god draws straight
But with crooked lines

As I turned on my walkman
And all I could hear
Every station was Marcos
He's on every TV

An appliance store window
He fills every screen
Then the TVs went blank
And his face disappeared

Then the darkness it thickened
There was no time for choices
Half blind I ran
I was guided by voices

When the choppers took off
Leaving Malacañang
We knew it was over
Knew it was the end

And there's so many people
Everybody is here
I saw the girls from the office
The whole country, it seems

You might think you are lost
But then you will find
That god draws straight
But with crooked lines

Yeah god draws straight
But with crooked lines
