Pearly Gates Lyrics

U.S. Girls
[Verse 1: Meg Remy]
I was standing at the Pearly Gates
I was looking for a man of faith
I had questions pressing on me more than not
I was looking for some answers on the spot

[Verse 2: Meg Remy]
Two girls walked in, paperwork in hand
They were tanned from the trip
They'd seen the judge, he'd heard 'em out
Wasn't lookin' good, wasn't lookin' good for us
What about us?

[Verse 3: Meg Remy]
But like some roadside vet with a bag in hand
I could do anything St. Peter asked
For one chance to be an angel in his eyes
It seemed to be the safe bet, so I closed my eyes
And I opened my gates wide
And St. Peter came inside

[Chorus: James Baley]
"Never, never be safe even if you're in the Gates
Give it up, you're just some man's daughter
Never, never be safe even if you're in the Gates
Give it up, you're just some man's daughter"

[Verse 4: Meg Remy]
I promise, this is not a rumor
I asked for nothing but to stop it short
I guess he didn't hear a word I said
And after he acted as if I hadn't been in his bed
I was definitely in his bed

[Verse 5: Meg Remy]
Peter bragged he was good at pulling out
He always knew the right time to take a bow
He practiced it every single night
It hadn't failed him yet
He'd been doing it a long, long time
And Peter just does whatever Peter likes

[Chorus: James Baley]
"Never, never be safe even if you're in the Gates
Give it up, you're just some man's daughter
Never, never be safe even if you're in the Gates
Give it up, you're just some man's daughter"

[Outro: Meg Remy & James Baley]
Even if you're at the Pearly Gates
Even if you're at the Pearly Gates
Even if you're at the Pearly Gates
Even if you're at the Pearly Gates
Pearly Gates

Even if you're at the Pearly Gates
Even if you're at the Pearly Gates Never be at the Gates [?]
Never be safe, Pearly Gates
Never (never, never be) at the Gates
Never, never be safe
Never, never be (safe)
Never, never at the Pearly Gates
Never (never, never be) at the Gates
Never, never be safe
Never, never be (safe)
Never, never at the Pearly Gates
Never (never, never be) at the Gates
Never, never be safe
Never, never be (safe)
Never, never at the Pearly Gates
