Never Made For This

from by Catherine Prewitt



Never Made For This
I’ve gone west and back and the snow is still piled on these city streets
Try as it might the rain can’t seem to wipe this cold away
We’re all stuck in our spots, can’t get out of this town
but on a railroad or if we fly.
Likewise she’s not going anywhere. Her friends are praying for her;
they’re scared, they’re scared
Afraid to tell anyone ‘cause it’s too heavy to hold; afraid she won’t grow old

You were never made for this

We’re through now with action steps, with “What do we do?”
We just sit with wet eyes and we pick at our food.
When sin is real like this, we can feel it in our stomachs.
They won’t settle ‘til she’s better, they won’t settle ‘til she’s all right

You were never made for this

All of my eggs are in one basket; Lord, wrap your arms around her
Lord tell her that you love her; Lord bring her back to life.

‘Cause you were never made for this
