The stranger on the bus...

The stranger on the bus could have been Jesus

Or something like that. Does anybody know from which song that line is or by what group? I've heard the song some time ago on the radio and this line stuck in my head. It was a woman who sang the song I think and it was a rock-pop tune...I just thought that maybe some of you might know the line.

Here ya go....


Words and Music by Eric Bazilian

If god had a name, what would it be?
And would you call it to his face
if you were faced with Him in all His glory?
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God is great.
Yeah, yeah, God is good.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
What if god was one of us,
just a slob like one of us,
just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home?

If God had a face, what would it look like?
And would you want to see
if seeing meant that you would have to believe
in things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints
and all the prophets?

And yeah, yeah, God is great.
Yeah, yeah, God is good.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
What if god was one of us,
just a slob like one of us,
just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home?

Just trying to make his way home, back up to heaven all alone.
Nobody calling on the phone,
'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome.

Yeah, yeah, God is great.
Yeah, yeah, God is good.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
What if god was one of us,
just a slob like one of us,
just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home,
just trying to make his way home, just like a holy rolling stone?
Back up to heaven all alone, just trying to make his way home.

Nobody calling on the phone,
'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome.

Oh my, thank you!

I was thinking about that single line for weeks now and
*boom* you tell me about the song within 5 minutes of asking!

Thanx a bunch, EP!
