God Is A DJ

(P!nk – God Is A DJ)

I’ve been a girl with her skirt pulled high
Been the outcast never running with mascara eyes
I see the world
As a candy store
With a cigarette smile saying things you can’t ignore
Like, mommy I love you
Daddy I hate you
Brother I need you
Love or hate, fuck you, I can see everything
Here with my third eye
Like the blue in the sky

If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm, you are the music
If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
You get what you’re given it’s all how you use it

I’ve been a girl with her finger in the air
Unaffected by rumors the truth I don’t care
So open your mouth, stick out your tongue
Might as well let go, you can’t take back what you’ve done
Just find a new life style, reason to smile
Look for nirvana, under the strobe lights
Sequins and sex strings
You whisper to me
There’s no reason to cry

If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm, you are the music
If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
You get what you’re given it’s all how you use it

Take what you get and get what you give
I said don’t run from yourself, man, that’s no way to live( no, no)
I’ve got a record in my bag, you should give it a spin
Put your hands in the air so that life can begin

(If God is a DJ, if God, say if God is a dj, if God
Then life is a dance floor)
Get your ass on the dance floor now!

If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm, you are the music
If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
You get what you’re given it’s all how you use it
If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm, you are the music
If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
You get what you’re given it’s all how you use it

If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm, you are the music
If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor
You get what you’re given it’s all how you use it

Never Ever

“Never Ever”

A few questions that I need to know
How you could ever hurt me so
I need to know what I’ve done wrong
And how long it’s been going on

Was it that I never paid enough attention?
Or did I not give enough affection?
Not only will your answers keep me sane
But I’ll know never to make the same mistake again

You can tell me to my face
or even on the phone
You can write it in a letter,
Either way, I have to know

Did I never treat you right?
Did I always start the fight?
Either way, I’m going out of my mind
All the answers to my questions I have to find

My head’s spinning
Boy, I’m in a daze
I feel isolated
Don’t wanna communicate

I’ll take a shower
I will scour
I will rub
To find peace of mind
The happy mind I once owned

Flexing vocabulary runs right through me
The alphabet runs right from A to Z
Conversations, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can’t find

I’m not crazy
I’m sure I ain’t done nothing wrong, no
I’m just waiting ’cause I heard
That this feeling won’t last that long

Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I’m feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

Never ever have I had to find
I’ve had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I’ve never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I’m feeling, yeah, I just don’t feel right

I’ll keep searching
Deep within my soul
For all the answers
Don’t wanna hurt no more

I need peace
Got to feel at ease
Need to be free from pain
Going insane
My heart aches, yeah

Sometimes vocabulary runs through my head
The alphabet runs right from A to Zed
Conversations, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can’t find

I’m not crazy,
I’m sure I ain’t done nothing wrong
And now I’m just waiting
‘Cause I heard that this feeling won’t last that long

Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I’m feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

Never ever have I had to find
I’ve had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I’ve never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I’m feeling, yeah, I just don’t feel right

Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I’m feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

Never ever have I had to find
I’ve had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I’ve never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I’m feeling, yeah, I just don’t feel right

You can tell me to my face,
You can tell me on the phone,
Ooh — You can write it in a letter, babe
‘Cause I really need to know

You can write it in a letter, babe

NOTES

Want to use this in a UU sermon about lamentation prayer (a prayer for help coming out of pain).  How would a UU use/access this best?

LISTEN

Great Spirit

(Native American)

Oh, Great Spirit –
Earth, Sun, Sky and Sea –
you are inside
and all around me.

Oh, Sacred Mystery –
Earth, Sun, Sky and Sea –
you are inside
and all around me.

Listen:

Great Mystery

As above, so below.
Spirit and matter
in a dance so slow.

As within, so without.
Great mystery
that spirals in and out.

Secret glory, hidden by nothing.
Thrice blessed, thrice called.
Thrice revealed.
