the paper trains – the straight n’ narrow lyrics

[verse 1]
gonna cut my hair, gonna get that job,
wanna save myself some money.
i’ll be out in a week and it’s you i seek,
i’m gonna get you back my honey.
you gave me up with nothing left to give,
from behind the bars i cried.
so please forgive me,
i’m so sorry.
i’ve learned my lesson,
i gave confession.

[verse 2]
i was on the straight when i met this man,
he said he needed just a little hand.
i could drive his car that it wouldn’t be far,
an easy job and don’t misunderstand.
but when i pulled in he asked me where i’d been,
losing time inside.
it drew attention,
then apprehension.
and there we were soon,
back in the courtroom.

[bridge]
back to where we started some time ago,
with you and me separated by the walls and barbed wire.
it’s in my veins to be off those tracks of this i know,
only one wrong move, i put my fingers in the fire.

[verse 3]
i was almost free you put your trust in me,
and start a new life in the country.
with our own front door i’d be good i swore,
but then we started up the third war.
he gave me no choice, i heard a small voice,
screaming out inside my head.
wrote you a letter,
said i’d be better.
give me your address,
and your forgiveness.

[verse 4]
now i’ve cut my hair, gone and got that job,
even saved myself some money.
it’s been two long years since i realised my fears,
and under oath i faced the jury.
but i got faith in a place beyond sin,
it leads me back towards the sh*r*.
so please forgive me,
i’m so sorry.
i’ve learned my lesson,
i gave confession.
