  • TO FEEL THE SAME.
  • 00:37:35.120 --> 00:37:36.110

  • I'M GONNA LAY DOWN MY FEELINGS,
  • 00:37:38.200 --> 00:37:40.210
  • MY EMOTIONS BECAUSE MY EMOTIONS
  • 00:37:40.210 --> 00:37:42.130
  • ARE GREAT LIARS, IF YOU LET
  • 00:37:42.210 --> 00:37:45.210

  • - PASTOR CHAD: YEAH.
  • 00:37:48.210 --> 00:37:49.190
  • - JOHN: YOUR EMOTIONS WILL

  • SAY: MY MARRIAGE AIN'T WORKIN'.
  • 00:37:50.150 --> 00:37:51.070
  • AND YOU'RE GETTIN' ON MY NERVES
  • 00:37:51.070 --> 00:37:52.000
  • AND YOU'RE MY PROBLEM.
  • 00:37:52.000 --> 00:37:52.290
  • - PASTOR CHAD: YEAH...YEAH.

  • YOU'RE NOT MY ENEMY.
  • 00:37:55.060 --> 00:37:55.260
  • - PASTOR CHAD: THAT'S IT.
  • 00:37:55.260 --> 00:37:56.240
