lyrics

Idaho
- 
Cara Luft & Lewis Melville

My life is in pieces, I’ve fallen in a great big hole
Spinning in circles, I’m burning hot and cold

My mama’s big sister, she’s living in Idaho
Crossing the border, I need somewhere to go

I need to begin my life all over again

She loves Jesus, he helps with what she needs
And when I’m with her his spirit she gives to me

I stay in the basement with George W. on the wall
Lambs and the lions, I get to sleep with them all

I need to begin my life all over again

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Dear Lord I thank thee for all the things you’ve done
Offer salvation when I am on the run

For my mama’s big sister, she’s living in Idaho
Crossing that border, I need somewhere to go

I need to begin my life all over again 


Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
