My Crime

04:53

Story

Inspired by my year-long bout with Epstein-Barre. What if I never got better? Would I have regrets about the way I lived my life? Oh yes. By not giving love, life or faith a chance, I have committed the ultimate crime. Ultimately, the song is a cry for a second chance, for redemption in this life.

Lyrics

I've been loved by precious men
Loved them back with fervent whim
Loved them til I couldn't stand that they loved me
Believed that they'd become fatigued
Believed I was not worthy
And now the moment has arrived for me
to look way deep inside
Did I give love a try?
Well I'm not so sure
And that's my crime

I was blessed with many gifts
That I meant to use someday
That I meant to share
but threw them all away
Cause the gift I never opened
Was the gift of faith
And now the moment has arrived for me
to look way deep inside
Did I give myself a try ?
Well I'm not so sure
And that's my crime

I lie in bed with a strange disorder
I'm not sure if I'll live or die
I rack my brain to figure out the reason why
There must be some kind of lesson
I'm supposed to learn from this
And now the moment has arrived for me
to look back on my life
Have I spent well the time?
Well I'm not so sure
And that's my crime

And I don't want to say good-bye...
