about

This is based on Ecclesiastes 7. Ecclesiastes is basically a wise depressed guy's thoughts on the world.
Thanks to my brother-in-law Yugo for helping this song take shape with some real drums! We had a lot of fun recording it!

lyrics

Come Quickly © Lightning Lucas, 2016

Capo 2, no harp, Em, D the whole time

Lord Come Quickly for I’m weary of this world x2
The day of death is better than the day of birth,
A fool’s heart is at home in the house of mirth,
It is better to, hear a wise rebuke,
Than to daily bask, in the praise of fools
(Lord) Come Quickly for I’m weary of this world x2

Don’t ask why the old days were better than these,
God has made the bad and the good interweave,
I have heard it sung, good folks dying young,
Wicked ones who stay, till they’re old and gray.
(Lord) Come Quickly for I’m weary of this world x2

This too is emptiness, This too is meaningless
Lord Come Quickly for I’m weary of this world x2

Do not be over righteous don’t be overwise
Don’t be a fool, why should you die before your time
The world contains no man, so righteous he can
Do right always and, never ever sin
(Lord) Come Quickly for I’m weary of this world x2


Ecclesiastes 7
