Lyrics

Forsaken

Lord please do forgive me for these sins that I’ve committed and the shit forsaken soul that I’ve become. Don’t know how it happened, took a wrong turn down near Memphis, now my liver’s boxed and I’m feeling overcome.
And I can’t take confession anymore. And I can’t find my way back to your door.

Lord please do forgive me for those sins that I forgotten and these ill-begotten party favor gains. Don’t know where it happened, hopped the wrong rail down near Georgia, now the train I’m on takes your name in vain.
Yeah and I can’t take communion anymore. Yeah and I can’t find my way back to your door.

Lord please do forgive me for I’ve coveted another, now I’m wrapped in my own blanket of disdain. Don’t know how it happened, the neighbor she came calling, now we’re lying here and we can’t clean up the stain.

Yeah and mama would be so proud, and grandma’s wrapped in shrouds of shame.
Yeah but mamas are always proud, and grandma’s not impressed by hollow fame.

So Lord please do forgive me for these sins that I’ve committed and the shit forsaken soul that I’ve become.

I never thought I’d need you.
Never could believe you.
Never thought I’d crawl back to your door…
