Mojave Rain

Joseph, Better You Than Me

Well your eyes just haven't been the same, Joseph
Are you bad at dealing with the fame, Joseph
There's a pale moonshine above you
Do you see both sides, do they shove you around

Is the touchstone forcing you to hide, Joseph
Are your rumors eating you alive, Joseph
When the holy night is upon you
Will you do what's right, the position is yours

From the temple walls to the New York night
Our decisions rest on a child
When she took her stand did she hold your hand
Will your faith stand still or runaway
Runaway

When they've driven you so far
Did you think your gonna drop
Do you wish you were back there
At the carpenter shop

With the plain and the lathe
The work never drove you mad
You're a maker, a creator
Not just somebody's dad

From the temple walls to the New York night
Our decisions rest on a man
When I take the stand will you hold my hand
Will my faith stand still or runaway

And the desert, it's a hell of a place to find Heaven
Forty years lost in the wilderness looking for God
And you climb to the top of a mountain
Looking down on a city where you were born
On the years since you left
Take the time to sit back and reflect

Better you than me
Better you than me
Better you than me
When the holy night is upon you
Better you, better you
Do you see both sides, do they shove you around

Better you than me
Joseph, better you than me
Better you than me
Joseph, Joseph
Joseph, Joseph
Than me
Better you than me

Better you, better you
Better you than me

Well your eyes just haven't been the same, Joseph
