Jesus – Ilana Charnelle

From the album Play Nice (2018).
Don’t trust an angel face
You can look, but run while you can
And don’t ever believe your saviour
Takes the shape of a man

Well I don’t know much about Jesus
Just a birthplace and a name
But from what I’ve heard about Jesus
I swear you look exactly the same
Well you’re certainly not a preacher
But I like the way you talk
You’re always thinking about where you’re headed
You’re always leaving but you’re never gone

Don’t trust an angel face
You can look, but run while you can
And don’t ever believe your saviour
Takes the shape of a man

Well when you took me into your bed, dear
Both my eyes were open wide
You might be used to stealing hearts but
I kept two firm hands on mine
Well you’re certainly no saint now
And you leave no heart un-won
Did you think that I’d say nothing?
Oh Jesus, look what you’ve done

Don’t trust an angel face
You can look, but run while you can
And don’t ever believe your saviour
Takes the shape of a man

Ooh, woah

Well I don’t know much about Jesus
Just a birthplace and a name
But from what I’ve heard about Jesus
I swear you look exactly the same
Well you’re certainly no saint now
It must be fun to feel no shame
Did you think I’d keep your secret?
Oh Jesus, what a mess you became
Oh Jesus, all men are the same
Oh Jesus, you took me in vain
