The Rapture

This song was written after an email conversation with an ex-gay minister. Last night, I sang it live at the Calvin Theatre, in North Hampton, in honor of...Pastor Ted Haggard.

What if I am wrong and what if you're right?
What if there is an intelligent design?
When the day comes and judgment begins
Will I be left behind?

What if I'm right and you're not correct
And there's no hell fire when we are dead?
Regretting all the boys you could of kissed
All for nothing, it wasn't a sin

You were busy getting ready for the rapture
For the rapture, for the rapture
You were busy getting ready for the rapture, warning us all

What if I've been a really nice gal, followed the golden rule but now, because I don't believe in your best pal,
you say I'll burn forever?
So let's say that he's real, but not like you sell
He's more like the nice hippie in Godspell
Well, I'd think that he was swell. Would that bum you out?

You were busy getting ready for the rapture
For the rapture, for the rapture
