lyrics

When I was a little girl I dreamt of being in love,
now I dream that it is enough
to have friends and not be alone.

When I was just growing up I thought that life it was good,
now I just wish the world would
disappear while I'm still alive.

But when I feel blue,
and I don't know what to do,
I just smile to myself and I say

Life is very long,
and your opinions mostly wrong,
and you will hurt everyone who you're close to,
and Jesus only loves you, Jesus only loves you,
Jesus only loves you, 'cause he has to.

Christmas Eve not long ago I walked alone through the snow,
til a citrus celestial glow drew me in to a house of god.

The priest, he said "Now take a seat, and tell me what's on your mind,
and I will repay you in kind", so I spoke,
and when I had unburdened my thoughts,

he poured us both some wine,
and he raised his glass to mine,
and with a smile and a wink he said,

"Life is very long, and your opinions mostly wrong,
and you will hurt everyone who you're close to,
and Jesus only loves you, Jesus only loves you,
Jesus only loves you, 'cause he has to."

Bouche London, UK

Bouche is the music of songwriter, double bass player and singer Rebekah Bouche, accompanied by trumpet/flugelhorn and electric guitar. The songs are a kind of "blue-jazz hymnal"; the honesty and rawness of the blues, with melodic salutes to early jazz and a sense of pathos and drama that nods in the direction of 19th century hymns and british folk. ... more
