Take It Back

Chords

 

I sent my resumé to God in MLA and 12 point font
My awards are all in order and my references are pretty strong
My bullets points: concise, and now my grammar's fixed and typo's found
I'm hopin' if she sees it I have made my English teacher proud

And I've done my share of charity but left out my profanities
I know that he's a busy guy and maybe won't remember these
The omnipotent editor knows all the trick by now, I'm sure
but first impression's stick so I am leading with my best foot first

So now I wait for the response
A call from my potential boss
Did I apply 'cause I am lost?
Is it too late to call it off?

I didn't know I had an answer for this question 'till I asked
but now that I am set in motion all I want's a second chance
Take it Back

And I’m flinching as I check the mail and flip through bills and grocery sales
I throw out all the clutter, understand that it can’t help me now
But there it is, I’ve finally heard ‘cause in my hands: the holy word
The envelope is gold and it’s addressed “To Whom It May Concern”

And I’m too scared to look inside
With shaking hands and fading eyes

But nothing now can change at all the contents of this envelope
It's best I get this over with 'cause ignorance won't save my soul
And I read the words one at a time but can't get past the leading line
My eyes refocus, open wide

“Your application's been denied”

I didn't know I had an answer for this question 'till I asked
but now that I may never have it all I want's a second chance
Take it back

“Your application's been denied
We can’t accept you at this time
We’ll keep your paperwork on file
We’ll reach back out when it’s your time

We know that life can seem so cruel
That’s why today is just too soon
You still have so much left to do
The world’s not ready to lose you

So many lives to still impact
Some still have yet to cross your path
We know that it’s a lot to ask
Please learn your worth, and take it back”

Take it back

I take it back
