[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 shore.
So please forgive me,
I’m so sorry.
I’ve learned my lesson,
I gave confession.
