Foy Vance - I Was Born Lyrics




I was born in The Vale of Angels
By the sea in the year 1974
In time for Christmas
To my father Hugh and my mother Anna Jean

For a while I walked in the ways of Jesus
Served me well enough it seems
Come to find Jesus doesn't need us
To be any more than we need him to be
I've heard talk like they knew about heaven
I can't help but seed the seams
And we could pull that thread and make two cloths to clean us
So all that I know is all I'll tell to thee

I was born in The Vale of Angels
By the sea in the year 1974
In time for Christmas
To my father Hugh and my mother Anna Jean

I was at war with that wild religion
And it revealed itself to me
And it slapped me sore enough to force some good decisions
Give me ears to hear and eyes by which to see
Oh, and I heard talk about a hell beneath us
Fires burn for eternity
But we're all just dust for those around to see us
So all that I know is all I tell to be

I was born in The Vale of Angels
By the sea in the year 1974
In time for Christmas
To my father Hugh and my mother Anna Jean
To my father Hugh and my mother Anna Jean
