Concrete Blonde - Jesus Forgive Me (For The Things I'm About To Say) Lyrics




Oh, Jesus
Please forgive me
For the things I'm about to say

I killed you in my mind today
I cut you up, I watched you bleed
I killed you in my heart today
For everything you did to me
I murdered you a hundred times
I shot you dead and never cried
I killed you in my mind today
I laughed and watched you die

Screaming at me all on fire
(Liar, liar, liar)
I buried you with my desire
(Liar, liar, liar)
I buried you so far below
(Liar, liar, liar)
I hate to see you go

(Oh, Jesus)
Oh, Jesus
(Please forgive me)
Oh, what am I thinking
Oh, oh
(Oh, Jesus)
Oh, Jesus
(Please forgive me)
What am I thinking

On my knees beside my bed
(Liar, liar, liar)
I'm sorry for the things I said
(Liar, liar, liar)
I've washed the sheets a million times
(Liar, liar, liar)
I'm paying for my crime
Oh, yeah

(Oh, Jesus)
Jesus
(Please forgive me)
Please forgive me
Yeah, oh
(Oh, Jesus)
Oh
(Please forgive me)
Everything that I did to you
Oh

(Oh, Jesus)
Oh
(Please forgive me)
I'm praying to you
Oh
(Oh, Jesus)
I am
(Please forgive me)
I don't know myself right now
Somehow
(Oh, Jesus)
Oh, Jesus forgive
(Please forgive me)
Forgive me now

(I killed you in my mind today)
Oh
(Oh, Jesus)
Oh, Jesus, please
(Please forgive me)
What I want
I mean it now
Mean it now
(I killed you in my mind today)
Somehow.

  1. Raven 94

    Johnette Napolitano had the coolest gray streak in her hair, when I saw her on the Dave letterman show, in 87 or 88. I have , fortunately, grown a gray streak in my hair quite naturally. Thanks Johnette. You made me love my gray!😎

    Oh Jesus! Bad ass fucking tune!!!!!!!!!!!😎😜😎😎😎😎😜😜😜😜😎😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😎😎😎

  3. TheRollingScones

    I'm getting strong af vibes of Etta James' "At Last" with the intro to this song. That's why I love Johnette's voice so damn much...she is so soulful without a doubt.
    The way Johnette vocalizes that "for the things I'm about to say" around 0:16 is undeniably paralleled to Etta's "for you are mine" (about 2:22 in "At Last").
    That tonality, the strength, the passion... God damn!

  4. Adam Turner

    CB should be bigger than they were! ... astounding! ❌

    Bran Di

    Adam Turner I agree, the most underrated group ever.

  5. Michael Polo

    Concrete Blonde are one of my biggest influences Johnette has the voice of absolute infinity
