​Bloodline

This song is by Matt Morris and appears on the album When Everything Breaks Open (2010).

She was a girl living in the city, clinging to old religion
Praying for electricity to keep it warm for the little ones
Nobody made her wise to, the things a girl might find
In the belly of a hungry man who don't care nothing about his bloodline
She got lost in the bloodline
Heavy cost of the bloodline
She goes on, she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline
So much riding on a bloodline
Why is he hiding from the bloodline?
It ain't right she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

She heard heaven is invite only, reserved for Christian soldiers
Not unwed girls living in the city asking for change from strangers
But father said Jesus loves her even though she never married
God loves her more than the Christians too, she's part of his holy bloodline
She got saved in the bloodline
The price he paid for the bloodline
Changed her life, she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline
She believes in the bloodline
Lives and breathes by the bloodline
With all her might she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

Oh ooh
I know I should have never left her to shoulder all the burden
She probably won't forgive me, god might not either
I made a cross and laid it on her back
But I never broke her spirit, and she owes that to her bloodline
She stayed strong for the bloodline, I did wrong by the bloodline
But she went on she cried at night and kept alive the bloodline
Sacrifice for the bloodline, paid the price for the bloodline
For all her life she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline

Oh she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline ooh
