Please forgive me darlin’,
You see, I’m only a man,
The rules for everything I’ll be,
Are written in shifting sand.
I’ve loved one woman forever,
Always loving you is what I do,
This temple built on my hill of life,
Was built from a dream of only you
I know my time is coming,
My sunset just over the next hill,
When the night falls upon me,
My constant love will be yours still.
The past will judge me unfairly,
The future cannot be known,
Today is all I have to give,
Tomorrow is yours alone.
