I wrote a song for you.

Lyrics

You said the first thing
that came to your head.
I knew that you didn't
really wish me dead.
There's times for forgiveness.
There's times for blame.
But all your sins are omissions now.

We went out dancing.
You pushed me away.
Crowd watched and wondered
just what I would say.
You took a taxi.
I walked in the rain.
All your sins are omissions now.

You wrote a letter,
a coward's goodbye.
Signed it "sincerely."
I know that's a lie.
There's nothing sincere
about the things you can't say.
All your sins are omissions now.

Your sister came to tell me,
and ask me for prayers.
She said she knew you
would have wanted me there.
I thought to correct her
as she walked away.
But all my sins are omissions now.
