He looks a lot like Jesus
Lyrics
He looks a lot like Jesus
© 2011 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

Some people say he's just a wandering, solitary preacher
That he shares his hospitality with strangers on the streets
Some people say he looks a lot like Jesus in their eyes
They say a righteous light shines all around him

Some people say he spends all day in alleyways with the poor man
That he gives everything he loves to the Goodwill charities in town
Some people say he walks across the river
When the sun goes down - and the city sleeps
And when I saw him, he stood out on the water
He said, come and take my hand and walk with me, oh walk with me

Chorus
Come follow me, come follow me
Come follow me, come follow me
Come follow me, come follow me
I'll take you to the place you need to find (oh, child of mine)

Some people say he causes them confusion
They say his vision for humanity is just a sad delusion
But some people say he's got the angels with him on his side
That they keep him company even when he cries

Some people say he talks to them in songs and rhymes and riddles
That the stories he tells them are filled with miracles and fables
Some people say he talks to them in parables
And the meaning of his words - so deep and strange
When I saw him, he stood out on the water
He said, come and take my hand and walk with me, and walk with me:

Chorus
Come follow me, come follow me
Come follow me, come follow me
Come follow me, come follow me
I'll take you to the place you need to find, oh ...

Come follow me, come follow me
Come follow me, come follow me
Come follow me, come follow me
Leave all your tears; leave all your fears behind, oh ...

I want to follow him
I need to follow him
I am going to follow him
I'm going to walk with him when he goes across the river, across the river

Some people say he talks to them in parables
Some people say he walks with angels, yeah
And some people say he gives all his love away
And some people say he looks a lot like Jesus, yeah
And some people say he looks a lot like Jesus
And some people say he looks a lot like Jesus
And some people say he looks a lot like Jesus
And some people say he looks a lot like Jesus
Like Jesus
Like Jesus
Like Jesus
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
