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?

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.

Listen:

Song to the Grandmothers (Grandmothers Song)

Grandmothers, weaving the rainbow.
Grandmothers, weaving the light.
Grandmothers, weaving the rainbow,
weaving the threads of my life.

Guide me on my spirit journey.
Guide me on my spirit journey.
Guide me on my spirit journey.
Guide me on my spirit journey.

Grandmothers, make my way sacred.
Lead me on the path of light.
Grandmothers, women of wisdom,
dance your sacred dance of light.
Sing your sacred songs of beauty.
Help me on my spirit flight.
