Out in the street
The wind in my hair
I should have ran
But I stood and stared

He was only a boy
A boy in too deep
I took his life
And now I’m paying with mine

Lord forgive me for what I’ve done
I didn’t mean to hurt no one, no

Passed down my sentence
Just the other day
I didn’t get any years
It’s my life I’ll pay

So many things to say(I don’t wanna I don’t wanna)
But I don’t want to say good-bye (I don’t wanna die)
I want to live I don’t wanna die

Lord forgive me for what I’ve done
I didn’t mean to hurt no one
Sorry soul
You set me free
I don’t wanna die
Lord forgive me

Here comes the Preacher
With the Book in his hand
I said I’m only a boy
He said you’ve gotta stand like a man
I sit here waiting
I’m waiting to pay
Lord forgive me
I don’t wanna die today

Lord forgive me for what I’ve done
I didn’t mean to hurt no one
Sorry soul
You set me free
I don’t wanna die
Lord forgive me

Lordy, Lordy please forgive me, I don’t wanna die today
No, nonononononononono
Said I. . . . . . . . . . .I
I don’t wanna die today

No No nonono
Said I. .
