lyrics

I awoke in a terrified state
from a dream I guess it was a nightmare
I grabbed the nearest mirror
Clutched it in my hands and smiled
Oh, handsome me

Proportionate structures
Bones and skin immaculate
Adonis cried when he glimpsed my headshot
Mother Mary called me her favorite son
Oh, handsome me

Well they sketched me and they etched me
But they just couldn’t figure out
What kind of god would let a man like this
Live on such mortal ground?

Put me on your T-shirts
Let me in your cathedral
This face could make warring nations congenial

Put me in your love letters
Let me in your holy temple
This face could make you sweat at just the thought
