A Hammer And An Awkward Nail

Jason Upton

I've got a hammer and an
Awkward nail that won't go down
I can try real hard but still it won't go down
Tell me how to do it, Jesus
Tell me how to do it, Jesus
I don't know how


The shadow in the corner is a stray cat that we found
I paid a thousand bucks once to keep that cat around
Now it's lying on the pavement
And the kids are crying: Save it!
But I don't know how
Did you straighten that nail with a magic tool?
Did you ever get tired and want to change the rules, Jesus?
What's amazing to me about a man like you
Is that you raised the dead, but had to suffer too, Jesus


I've got a mountain up ahead and a few I've left behind
And I'm getting kind of scared of what I'm going to find
Were you scared to do it, Jesus?
Tell me how you did it, Jesus
I don't how


If the present is a place that my future will define
I want to slow things down and take a little time
Can you help me do it Jesus?
I want to live a little Jesus
But I don't know how
Did you straighten that nail with a magic tool?
Did you ever get tired and want to change the rules, Jesus?
What's amazing to me about a man like you
Is that you raised the dead, but had to suffer too, Jesus
