Date For Church
(Joe Henry/WB Music/True North Music)
I’ve got a date for church tonight. I’m meeting her inside.
So I’m goin’ down to Miller Road, try and catch me a ride.
I’ve got a date in the second pew. And if you don’t see me,
I might be late, might just be watchin’ her from the balcony.
I’ve seen her home so many times.
I’ve seen her up in town.
I’ve seen her slippin’ out the back
When her mother’s shades were down.
I’ve got a date every Wednesday night, but I don’t close my eyes for prayer.
And if I leave before the closing hymn, she’ll never know I was even there.She’ll never know. She’ll never know. (2x)

on this project, Joe DiGiorgi and I wondered if it isn’t really a stalking song in disguise. I think that — like most things romantic — it either seems really sweet and endearing, or sort of sick, depending on your frame of reference.
