Michael Penn – A Revival Lyrics

A Revival Lyrics – Michael Penn

All these movers and shakers
They got nothing on you
You could buy ‘em and sell ‘em tomorrow
Or charm them all with your revue
You were given the kingdom
And presented the keys
But you won’t feel the emptiness fill
Until everyone’s down on their knees

But can you hear it coming?
A revival
Oh there’s good news coming
’Cause we agreed…
Had a deal…
Commonweal

You got the look of a winner
You got zero sum game
And each body that falls in the ditch
Well, he’s just got his own self to blame
‘Cause you believe in an order
And you place where you place
And the redline you drew is a bloodline
It’s you who’ll be winning this race

But I can hear it coming
A revival
Oh there’s good news coming
‘Cause we agreed…
Had a deal…
Commonweal

Soon
You’ll be gone
You’ll be gone
Gone
You’ll be gone
You’ll be long, long, long gone

So you better get ready
Better tear down those gods
They were heretics, traitors and dunces
Well, who’d of guessed? What were the odds?

When they said you were special
Always right, never wrong
And so, clearly it is destiny
That the world is all yours
Not for long

‘Cause I can hear it coming
A revival
Oh, there’s good news coming
Love is real.
And sealed the deal.
Commonweal
