*spoken*

Forgive me, Father for I have sinned. It's been years since I last confessed.

What would you like to confess?

~sighs~ I've let my life become a mess. I feel like throwing up when I look in the mirror. I hate myself. And I don't know if I believe anymore.

*Intro*

(Have mercy, forgive me, please tell me

What am I doing wrong?) x2

*Verse 1*

I've been lost for a while now

Took the wrong road somewhere back

Now I'm trapped here in the black

I'm confused and I don't know how

How do I ask for help? please,

won't somebody just tell me?

*Chorus*

Forgive me, God, for I have sinned

it's been a while since I believed in you

But on those days I just can't win

I wish you'd just show me the truth

Show me the truth

*Verse 2*

I've been waiting a while now

I need some answers soon

Can't you tell me I'm not doomed?

I try to love but I don't know how

Can't figure out my life

But I still don't wanna fight

*Chorus*

Forgive me, God, for I have sinned

it's been a while since I believed in you

But on those days I just can't win

I wish you'd just show me the truth

Show me the truth

*Bridge*

It feels like years since I last confessed

Where's my life story when there's nothing left?

I don't know what I'm doing wrong

I just need a reason to go on

(Please, please, please, I need the truth)

*Chorus*

Forgive me, God, for I have sinned

(Have mercy)

It's been a while since I believed in you

On those days I just can't win

(Forgive me)

I wish someone would pull me through

and tell me the truth
