God Said No

This song is by Dan Bern and appears on the album New American Language (2001).

Original video
I met God
On the edge of town
Where the wind meets the stillness
Where the darkness meets the light
Where the ocean meets the sky
Where the desert meets the rain
Where the earth meets the heavens
On the edge of town
I met God

I asked God
Do one thing for me
Send me back in time, send me to Seattle
Let me go find Kurt Cobain
Take away his gun, take away his bullets
Talk to him, make him want to live
Tell him how we love him, help him see his glory

God said no
If I sent you back
If you really found him
You would only ask him
If he could help you get a deal
If he knows a lawyer, if he can help you
God said no

I asked god
Do one thing for me
Send me back in time, send me to Berlin
Let me find the one they call Hitler
I will stalk him, I will bring him down
I will bring along a powerful gun
Loaded with bullets
Obliterate his memory

God said no
If I sent you back
You would get caught up in theory and discussion
You would let your fears delay and distract you
You would make friends
You would take a lover
God said no

I asked god
Do one thing for me
Send me back in time, send me to Jerusalem
Let me go, let me go find Jesus
Let me save his life as they try to kill him
Let me take him down, down from the cross
Take the iron from his body
Try to heal his wounds

God said no
If I let you go
If you really found him
Walking with the cross
You would stare
Your tounge no longer working
Eyes no longer seeing
Ears no longer hearing

God said time
Time belongs to me
Time's my secret weapon, the final advantage
God turned away from the edge of town
I knew I was beaten
And that now was all I had

God said no
