If Ever I Stray

england-keep-my-bones - 2:54
Forgive me, someone, for I have sinned,
And I know not where I should begin,
And some days it feels like you just can't win,
No matter what you do or say.

Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger;
Life is short but it feels much longer
When you've lost that fight, you've lost that hunger
To pull yourself through the day.

But if ever I stray from the path I follow,
Take me down to the English Channel,
Throw me in where the water is shallow,
And then drag me on back to shore.
Because love is free and life is cheap,
And as long as I've got me a place to sleep,
Clothes on my back and some food to eat,
I can't ask for anything more.
So come on everybody sing: 1, 2, 3, 4

We've all got secrets that we hold inside,
The worst little things that you never confide,
And the worst one of all that you just can't hide
Is that you're never quite as strong as you sound.
So I'm sorry baby, for the times I've hurt you,
Sorry friends, for the times I desert you.
Most days it feels like I don't deserve you,
And I wonder that you're all still around.

Come on and join me in the water,
And we'll swim for home.
Sometimes it's hard to remember:
I couldn't do this on my own.

The path I chose isn't straight and narrow;
It wanders around like a drunken fellow.
Some days it's hard for me to follow,
But if you've got my back I'll go on.
