about

Written from the perspective of a person rejected, the main character of the song begs the church for acceptance. The song encourages us to love, regardless of our differences and flaws.

lyrics

Verse
You look at me like I did you wrong
I show my hand but you move along
My hand stays cold as you meet and greet
I show a smile but you hide your teeth

Pre
I’m here at the door now please just let me in

Chorus
Save me a seat and maybe I’ll stay longer
Hold my hand and maybe I’ll get stronger
I know I’m no greater than the least of these
But I hear there’s someone here who died for me
So save me a seat at your church please

Verse 2
Perfect homes, healthy family trees
Your Religion, your prestige
Lofty saints in suits and ties
Look at me with their judging eyes

Verse 3
Three divorces, abuse and pain
Got no bachelors to my name
Lost all the friends that I call dear
Fought through life and barely made it here
