You look away
It’s apparent …. it’s true
There’s distance between us
Can’t get close to you.

The look in your eyes
The change in your voice
What more can I  do?
I don’t have a choice.

I’ve begged and I’ve pleaded
I be down on my knees
You won’t reconsider
You won’t forgive me.

For you …. all that matters
Is that I have lied
You’re passing judgement
While I sit and cry.

Hardened and cold
You turn your back 
I should’a known
How you would react.

Can’t you show mercy?
Let go of your pride
There’s strength in forgiveness
I’m sorry …… I lied.
