I'm walking home alone
past all the bars and corner delis

when I heard God call out my name

 

and He said "Hey

Let's grab a beer

It's awful late

We're both right here"

And we didn't even have to pay
'cause God is God
and He's revered

and I said
"Why doesn't it get better with time?"
I'm becoming all alone again
Stay stay stay

 

Let the ones who want it bad
get all the things that make 'em better

Let the ones who don't care feel a thrill

 

And I just wanna ride

but this whole world
it makes me car-sick

 

Stop the meter, sir

You have a heart
Why don't you use it?

 

Why doesn't it get better with time?

I'm becoming all alone again

Stay stay stay

 

I've been walking home alone

This is what I hear. Feel very free to correct it. Especially the parts with question marks. "Stop the music" sometimes sounds like "Stop the mirror, sir" ;) So one can't be too sure.

 

And the tenses don't make sense to me. "I'm walking" with "I heard". But I think it's what seh sings. So.

I hear:


 


"I wa' [maybe went?] walkin' home alone


Past all the bars and corner delis


When I heard God call out my name


 


And he said 'Hey, let's grab a beer


It's awful late


We both right here'


 


And we didn't even have to pay


'cause God is God and he's revered


 


And I said 'Why isn't it gettin' better with time?


I'm becoming all alone again...


Stay stay stay...'


 


Let the ones who want it bad


Get all the things that make 'em better


Let the ones who don't care feel a thrill


 


And I just wanna ride but this whole world, it makes me carsick


Stop the meter, sir


You have a heart


Why don't you use it?


 


Why isn't it gettin' better with time?


I'm becoming all alone again


Stay stay stay...


 


I wa'/went walking home alone


Past all the bars and corner delis


When I heard God call, call my name


 


And he said 'Hey, let's grab a beer


It's awful late 


We both right here'


 


And we didn't even have to pay


'cause God is God and he's revered


 


And I said 'Why isn't it gettin' better with time?


I'm becoming all alone again


 


I'm becoming all alone again


 


Stay stay stay...


Stay stay stay...


Stay stay stay...


Stay stay stay...'"

after a new hearing passage with you'all lyrics, this is what I have

 

I'm walking home alone
Past all the bars and the corner delis
And [* I think it's "and" because in the next verse she also sings "And" and it sounds awful late similar :P] I heard God call out my name
 
And he said: "Hey"
"Let's grab a beer
It's awful late
We're both right here"
 
And we didn't
Even have to pay
'cause God is God
And he's revered
And I said
Why isn't [* pretty sure it's "isn't"] it getting better with time?
I'm becoming all alone again
Stay stay stay
 
Let the ones who want it bad
get all the things that make 'em better
Let the ones who don't care feel a [*] thrill
 
And I
Just wanna ride
But this whole world
It makes me carsick
Stop, the meter sir
You have a heart
Why don't you use it?
 
Why isn't [*] it getting better with time?
I'm becoming all alone again
Stay stay stay
 
uuuuuuuhhhh ruuuuhhruuuuuuhhh uuuuuh uuuuuuhhhh x2
ahhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhh uuuuuhhh uuuuuuhhhhhh
 
I was/went [? not sure which one it is, it might even be totally different] walking home alone
Past all the bars and corner delis
When I heard God, call
Call my name
 
And he said hey
Let's grab a beer
It's awful late
We're both right here
 
And I didn't
Even have to pay
'cause God is God
And he's revered
 
And I said
Why isn't it getting better with time?
I'm becoming all alone again
Stay stay stay
 
I'm becoming all alone again
Stay stay stay
Stay stay stay
Stay stay stay

Oops, sorry, thought I got all of these...

 

EDIT: Done. :) Definitely report them if you see them. I can usually get them pretty quickly but sometimes they slip through.
