​Failed Christian

This song is by Over The Rhine and appears on the album Live From Nowhere Volume Two (2007) by ​Over the Rhine.

This song is a cover of "Failed Christian" by ​Nick Lowe.
I'm a Failed Christian
I don't go to church
I smoke and I drink
And I lie and I curse

It never got to me
Your sermon and all
You talked and you talked
About nothing at all

I'm a Failed Christian
Failed Christian, yeah

I've got two recollections
Taking the collections
And tears when the choir sang in harmony
It scared me half to death
I swore as I left
With a inside pocket full of change and memories

I'm a Failed Christian
Failed Christian

I'm a Failed Christian
I've got my own church
I pray with my soul
To this great universe

All over the world
The bloods on their hands
Religious instruction
I can't understand

I'm a Failed Christian,
Failed Christian, yeah

I'm going to meet my maker
A firm believer
Of spirit in music
There's a prayer in a song

I'm a Failed Christian
And if I'm go under
And you're coming with me
That much I can't tell

I'm a Failed Christian
Failed Christian, yeah
Failed Christian
Failed, failed, failed...

I'm a Failed Christian
I don't go to church
I smoke and I drink
And I lie and I curse
