Never Gonna Be As Big As Jesus

This song is by Audio Adrenaline and appears on the album Bloom (1996) and on the greatest hits compilation Hit Parade: The Greatest Hits (2000).

I could move to Hollywood, yeah
Get my teeth capped, I know I could
Be a big star on the silver screen
Just like James Dean I could be a star
I could climb a corporate ladder
Buy, sell, and liquidate
Maybe be just like the Beatles
Melodic rocking heavyweights
I could learn to sing and dance
If I only had a chance
I could be a big rock star

I could do anything
I wanted to, yeah
I wanted to
I could be anything
But one thing's true

Never gonna be as big as Jesus
Never gonna hold the world in my hands
Never gonna be as big as Jesus
Never gonna build the promise land
But that, that's all right, O.K. with me

I could build a tower to heaven
Get on top and touch the sky
I could write a million songs
All designed to glorify
I could be about as good
Good as any human could
But that won't get me by

I could do anything
I wanted to, yeah
I wanted to
I could be anything
But one thing's true

Never gonna be as big as Jesus
Never gonna hold the world in my hands
Never gonna be as big as Jesus
Never gonna build the promise land
But that, that's all right, O.K. with me

I could do anything
I wanted to,
I wanted to
I could be anything
But one thing's true

Never gonna be as big as Jesus
Never gonna hold the world in my hands, yeah
Never gonna be as big as Jesus
Never gonna build the promise land
But that, that's all right, it's O.K. with me, yeah

Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
As big as Jesus
As big as Jesus

Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
As big as Jesus
As big as Jesus

Oh, yeah
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
Never gonna be
