It's a sin, my darlin', how I love you
Because I know our love can never be
It's a sin to keep this mem'ry of you
When silence proves that you've forgotten me.
The dream I built for us has tumbled
Each promise broken like my heart
It's a sin, my darling, how I love you
So much in love and yet so far apart
--- Instrumental ---
I'm sure you're happy with another
Who shares the love I can't win
Why pretend that I can't live without you
When deep inside I know that it's a sin...
