There are some things you do that will never make a difference
And some that will change the world.
The hardest lesson I ever had to learn was love
And I failed the test miserably.
Can you ever forgive me?
Jesus ate with tax collectors, prostitutes and drunkards.
But I don't like the way you dress
And besides, you smoke.
The truth is I saw you that day,
Down at the docks and you were crying
And I knew I had to do something
So I mumbled a quick prayer and I left you
Sitting there alone, crying.
I didn't want to hear how your boyfriend dumped you
After you gave yourself to him like that.
I told you not to and you didn't listen to me.
I've tried to tell you so many things, but you never listen.
So I leave you alone with these words:
God loves you.
But you won't believe me.
You cannot know that God loves you
Because you do not know I love you.
You are not good enough for me
So you cannot be good enough for God.
If only you would change so I could love you
And tell you that God loves you to!
The truth is I saw you that day at the docks, crying
And I didn't want to go to you
Or touch your filthy hand
Or put my arm around your bare, shaking shoulders.
The hardest lesson I ever had to learn was love.
Can you ever forgive me?
