You're Not My God
by Keith Urban



It's just a piece of paper,
It says, "In God We Trust"
A little sure felt good
But a lot was not enough
And everybody loved me when I was on a roll
And I thought I had everything
When I held the gold

[Chorus]
But you're not my god
And you're not my friend
You're not the one
That I will walk with in the end
You're not the truth
You're a temporary shot
You ruin people's lives
And you don't give a second thought
You're not my god

Little white lies on a mirror
Cut neatly in a roll
Medicine that kept me from lookin' in my soul
I thought you were the answer
To all of my despair
And you almost had me six feet down
But I'm still breathin' air

[Chorus]

From the cradle to the grave
Temptations all around
But no matter how good the fix
It's gonna take you down
Now some call it a weakness
Some call it a sin
But it's all the same behind each game
I see your evil grin

But you're not my god
And you're not my friend
You're not the one
That I will walk with in the end
You're not the truth
You're a temporary shot
You ruin people's lives
And you don't give a second thought

[Chorus]

You're not my god
Oh oh oh you're not my god
You're not my god
Not my god
Not my god
You're not, you're not, you're not my god
No you're not
