Jesus Jesus, Please Wait to Come

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

I found this guy named Noah Gundersen the other day. He is a pretty talented artist. There was a song that jumped out to me right away. It was called “Jesus Jesus” and had explicit next to the title. I figured those two are a great mix and so I checked out the song. Here you go

(f word is involved, FYI)

What do you think?

      “Jesus, Jesus, could you tell me what the problem is
      With the world and all the people in it?
      Because I’ve been hearing stories about the end of the world
      But I’m in love with a girl and I don’t wanna leave her
      And the television screams such hideous things
      They’re talking about the war on the radio
      They say the whole thing’s gonna blow
      And we will all be left alone
      No we’ll be dead and we won’t know what hit us

      Jesus, Jesus, if you’re up there won’t you hear me
      ‘Cause I’ve been wondering if you’re listening for quite a while
      And Jesus, Jesus, it’s such a pretty place we live in
      And I know we fuc*ed it up, please be kind
      Don’t let us go out like the dinosaurs
      Or blown to bits in a third world war
      There are a hundred different things I’d still like to do
      I’d like to climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower
      Look up from the ground at a meteor shower
      And maybe even raise a family

      Jesus, Jesus, there are those that say they love you
      But they have treated me so G-d*mn mean
      And I know you said ‘forgive them for they know not what they do’
      But sometimes I think they do
      And I think about you
      If all the heathens burn in hell, do all their children burn as well?
      What about the Muslims and the gays and the unwed mothers?
      What about me and all my friends?
      Are we all sinners if we sin?
      Does it even matter in the end if we’re unhappy?

      Jesus, Jesus, I’m still looking for answers
      Though I know that I won’t find them here tonight
      But Jesus, Jesus, could you call me if you have the time?
      And maybe we could meet for coffee and work it out
      And maybe then I’ll understand what it’s all about”

        thanks for putting these up Christy. I think it adds a lot to being able to see the lyrics as well.

    I just want to say, THANK YOU, Kyle, for posting this song for me to hear. I wouldn’t have heard it if you hadn’t posted it. I listened to it twice…using headphones the second time, so I could hear all the words well. This song seems to be the heart’s CRY of this young man’s whole generation…as well as my own sometimes. I literally cried real tears as he sang it, and the meanings behind his lyrics sank in. I’m not even going to comment on the use of the words we like to consider profane. I know that we humans often get hung up on what is really profane in God’s eyes, and what is not. All I want to say is THANK YOU. This song has affected me today, and for that I am grateful.

      No problem. It definitely left a mark on me yesterday and I am glad that it is leaving one of you today.

        Just wanted to update you and let you know I posted the video on my Facebook and asked for reactions as well. My most favorite comment so far comes from a middle-aged, church-going friend of mine, who wrote, “that has to be the most honest cry out to God that I’ve heard in a long time.” =)

    Oh how much I loved this. SO beautiful the way he sings it. He puts it so perfect into words.

    You know what comes to mind when I read these lyrics? (I can’t listen – yet – I’m still in my classroom) :) I think of David. And Psalms. And his gut-wrenching-heartdroppingtohisknees conversations with God. I guarantee you authenticity beats out complacent ambiguity any day. Thanks for posting this, Kyle.
