Forgive me my unsettled ways
Don't linger in time or finger what's mine
Don't make me do
What you wouldn't do yourself
Forgive me the bad things I do
Don't ask me to change or exchange what I am
For something else
You know that wouldn't do

If time gets to heavy and you can no longer bear it
And you need someone to share it
Tell me girl, I'll try to make amends

Forgive me the ways of my heart
Don't try to pretend or lend me your love
Don't ask of me
What you wouldn't ask yourself

If time gets to heavy and you can no longer bear it
And you need someone to share it
Tell me girl, I'll try to make amends

Forgive me my unsettled ways
Don't linger in time or finger what's mine
Don't make me do
What you wouldn't do yourself
Don't make me do
What you wouldn't do yourself
