Schwa Lyrics

No Guarantee

Lyricist: John Mullins
Vocalist: John Mullins

Oh yeah...
Delicious sights of you they fill my head
It's ever loving truth my hearts been fed
Greener fields they are always on the way
Would you have had it any other way
I can see you lying there                 
Tangles in your hair
A solitary tear touches your cheek
While I watch you sleep
Going away tomorrow
Compass with a heading facing East
Home again is when I don't know
There ain't no guarantee...

Oh yeah...
Anticipation creeps up on it's heals
The mind says no but still the heart did steal
Oh the game itself isn't that we we adore
Or is it just the memory of it more
After all's been said and done
And we are gone
Someone new will come out to play
Same old God they'll pray
See us through tomorrow
Just one more day on this Earth if you please
I lay my head down to great sorrow
There ain't no guarantee
[Line always changes - purposefully flubbed]
Walking a line of a life that's not been marked
Nobody here knows if that is right or wrong
Only to be sure you love their song

Oh yeah.....
Well I've heard that God does answer every prayer
And I have heard that God is everywhere
If this is true isn't that to where we'll go
I've prayed and sometimes found the answer is no
When the time comes for me to lie
Lie down and die
Just put my ashes in my first guitar
Send me to the stars
I'll remember you
You remember me
Off in space together
There ain't no guarantee...
