Jill Phillips: “You Don’t Belong Here”

Hey Lady sitting by yourself, I can hear them say
“You don’t belong here if your man’s away”
Cause they believe in a love that has no end
So you can either tough it out or live in sin

Just when I start to think they’ve got it all wrong
That’s when I realize the truth

Maybe they’re right you don’t belong here
You deserve to be where there are people that care
Instead of a world that shouts from the high road
Saying we love like God but you don’t belong here

Hey you with the rainbow flag, I can hear you say
You don’t belong here, not if you’re gay
Although we all fall short, I guess they still believe
Some people fall too far for grace to reach

Just when I start to think they’ve got it all wrong
That’s when I realize the truth

Maybe they’re right you don’t belong here
You deserve to be where there are people that care
Instead of a world that shouts from the high road
Saying we love like God but you don’t belong here

I am not trying to decide what’s right or wrong
I don’t think that job is up to me
But they’re selling passports to the gates of kingdom come
Like they’re the ones who hold the key

Hey man hanging on the cross, is it really true
When they say we don’t belong, you’ve been there too
You were a friend to prostitutes, you were a friend to thieves
For that your blood was shed by the pharisees

‘Cause you don’t belong here
You deserve to be where there are people that care
Instead of a world that shouts from the high road
Saying we love like God but you don’t belong here
