whisper my name

i just heard the song 'even an ugly man' by hawksley workman on the radio. i love the lyrics, i had to look them up. see the bold chunk of lyric at the bottom....i would kill to have someone write/think/say/sing something like that to me.


What jesus can't fix tonight
The whiskey certainly might.
I must have said the lord's prayer 65 times.
And thought of your face
And our infinite grace
All of the ways to behold you
Until the tide will I wait.

What crying won't fix tonight
The whiskey certainly might
I must have doubted your faith 65 times.
And thought of your face
And your infinite grace
All of the ways to behold you
Until the tide will I wait.

Even an ugly man
Could kiss your lips
As if they were his to demand of
Or his to destroy like a lover of a demon

What loving won't fix tonight
The whiskey certainly might
I must have whispered your name 65 times.
My lips on your face
In our infinite grace
All of these ways to behold you
Until the tide will I wait
