Written from the perspective of a person rejected, the main character of the song begs the church for acceptance. The song encourages us to love, regardless of our differences and flaws.


You look at me like I did you wrong
I show my hand but you move along
My hand stays cold as you meet and greet
I show a smile but you hide your teeth

I’m here at the door now please just let me in

Save me a seat and maybe I’ll stay longer
Hold my hand and maybe I’ll get stronger
I know I’m no greater than the least of these
But I hear there’s someone here who died for me
So save me a seat at your church please

Verse 2
Perfect homes, healthy family trees
Your Religion, your prestige
Lofty saints in suits and ties
Look at me with their judging eyes

Verse 3
Three divorces, abuse and pain
Got no bachelors to my name
Lost all the friends that I call dear
Fought through life and barely made it here
