Lyrics

Forgive me someone for I have sinned
And I know not where I should begin
And somedays 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 the fight, yeah 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 one two three four.

So we all have 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.
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 one two three four.

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
Sometimes it's hard for me to follow
But if you've got my back I'll go on,
If you've got my back I'll go on.
