doubting thomas lyrics – nickel creek

what will be left when i’ve drawn my last breath
besides the folks i’ve met and the folks who’ve known me
will i discover a soul-saving love
or just the dirt above and below me

i’m a doubting thomas
i took a promise
but i do not feel safe
oh me of little faith

sometimes i pray for a slap in the face
then i beg to be spared cause i’m a coward
if there’s a master of death
i bet he’s holding his breath
as i show the blind and tell the deaf about his power

i’m a doubting thomas
i can’t keep my promises
cause i don’t know what’s safe
oh me of little faith

can i be used to help others find truth
when i’m scared i’ll find proof that it’s a lie
can i be led down a trail dropping bread crumbs
that prove i’m not ready to die

please give me time to decipher the signs
please forgive me for time that i’ve wasted

i’m a doubting thomas
i’ll take your promise
though i know nothin’s safe
oh me of little faith
