These are the confessions of a broken down man
She said she needed a father
So I faked fatherhood and drew her in
I don't know if it was intended
Maybe something broke inside of me
A long long time ago
And it never has been mended
But one night on my bed
She told me something that she never told nobody
And I just laid there cold as a stone and stared
These are the confessions of a broken down man
I had a baby by my first wife
She was wanting one and I gave in
I swear I loved her and our home
But a man has got to work to live
And sometimes he can find himself out on the road alone
And when I came back home
She's holding baby
But I can't remember for the life of me
What is his name?
These are the confessions of a broken down man
I give up. I give in. I can't do this anymore
I've been turned out by my family
I have heard them slam the door
I'm like a wounded man out on a hill in the wind
Saying Father, forgive me
Father, forgive me
Father, forgive me
For I have sinned
