Lyrics

24 HOURS AGO

We laughed at a stupid joke.
I got mad when you were late.
“I love you” were hurried words
as I ran toward my day.
Life was so perfect then,
I was happy Not knowing
24 hours ago.

They say there’s a reason,
But can’t say what it is.
They say there’s a heaven,
But no one’s ever been.
They say have faith it’ll be all right.
But tonight, God & I are gonna have a fight.

I don’t get what God was thinkin’
the day he broke my heart.
He made you an angel.
He made me fall apart.
And now I can’t stop cryin’ for
what was and could have been,
If not for one moment,
24 hours ago.

They say there’s a reason,
But can’t say what it is.
They say there’s a heaven,
But no one’s ever been.
They say have faith
it’ll be all right.
But tonight, God & I are gonna have a fight.

God, I’m going crazy,
I can’t get out of bed.
I scream ‘til my lungs are raw
Why not take me instead?
I can’t see your grander plan,
No right, no good, no fair.
God, what the hell happened,
24 hours ago?

I still don’t know what God was thinkin’
But I know he took the best.
I can’t stand to say goodbye
as I leave you in his hands.
Then memories of us laughing knock the sharp edge off the pain.
I still feel your love - that didn’t die
24 hours ago.

They say there’s a reason,
But can’t say what it is.
They say there’s a heaven,
But no one’s ever been.
They say have faith
it’ll be all right
So tonight
I’ll have faith, that it’ll be all right.
