​The Good News

This song is by Bloc Party and appears on the album Hymns (2016).

Spent my commission on
Another diversion and I
Don't got no meaning
No purpose left at all
My pastor tells me that my
My light is dimming and I
Been too long drifting
In an ocean
It's OK
You just need faith
Been looking for answers
In the wrong place
But how do I tell him that the
There's something missing and I
Don't got no substance since you've gone

Every day I go down to the water
And I pray since you left me that way
Oh Lord, I'm trying to keep my mind
On the good news that's in my heart

For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
Since my baby left, my light
Refuses to shine
Like a bird without a song or
A sun that will not rise

Now I can make the eye
To anyone that I desire
Throwing down one for the lost boys
At the very edge of town
Now I can spin a lie
That burns me up all through the night
'Cause I've got no one home to answer to
This time
Every day is in repeat
Like a carrier bag stuck in a tree
I used to find my answers in the gospels of St John
But now I find them at the bottom of this shot glass

Every day I go down to the water
And I pray since you left me that way
Oh Lord, I'm trying to keep my sights
On the good news that's in my heart

For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
(Don't got no meaning and I
Don't got no purpose)
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
(Can't find no comfort and I
Can't find no solace)
Since my baby left, my light
Refuses to shine
Like a bird without a song or
A sun that will not rise
