You can distract me when
I'm older.
You can have all the
pieces of my heart.
I'm soaking up the sun,
trying to live out my dreams.
I'm taking it day by day,
not letting anyone stand
between her and I.

I know it's a crime.
I just can't let it go
yet.
I know I'm wasting
my time.
I guess it's just not
time for me to become
a prodigal son.

Someday I'll do it the
legal way.
I'll get down on my hands
and knees.
I'll ask her to claim my
heart.
Her father will give me
his blessing.
I won't stop until
I hear him say I'm clear
for take off.

I know it's a crime.
I just can't let it go
yet.
I know I'm wasting
my time.
I guess it's just not
time for me to become
a prodigal son.

Is it true what they say?
Will you leave the
lights on for me?
Will you come running
if I wanna come back
to you?
Will my brother throw
a fit at the sight of my
face?
Will he refuse to show
me grace?

I know it's a crime.
I just can't....
Not based on actual events. Although most of us probably know what it's like to sin at some point in our lives. We can certainly all relate to the feeling of being lost.
