Room

— Song Lyrics

Lyrics Source

[Verse 1] They say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away And just the pure at heart will walk her righteous streets someday They say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away But if there is a God, we need Him now "where is your God?" That's what my friends ask me And I say it's taken Him so long 'Cause we've got so far to come [Verse 2] Tell me, people Why can't they say that hate is 10 zillion light years away? Why can't the light of good shine God's love in every soul? Why must my color black make me a lesser man? I thought this world was made for every man He loves us all, that's what my God tells me And I say it's taken Him so long 'Cause we've got so far to come [Chorus] But in my heart I can feel it, yeah Feel His spirit, whoa whoa, whoa Feel it, yeah, feel His spirit [Verse 3] I... can't say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away But if so let all be pure at heart Just to walk her righteous streets I pray Let God's love shine within to save our evil souls For those who don't believe will never see the light "where is my God" - He lives inside of me And I say it's taken Him so long 'Cause we've got so far to come People, "Where is your God?" — inside, please let Him be And I say it's taken Him so long 'Cause we've got so far to come [Chorus] But if you open your heart you can feel it, yeah yeah Feel His spirit whoa whoa, whoa Feel it, yeah, you can feel His spirit I opened my heart one morning and I sho nuff could feel it, yeah yeah Feel His spirit, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah You can feel it, yeah, feel His spirit Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah You can feel it, yeah...
