Forgive me my unsettled ways
Don't linger in time or finger what's mine
Don't make me do what you wouldn't do yourself

Tell me girl, I'll try to make amends

Forgive me my unsettled ways
Don't linger in time or finger what's mine
Don't make me do what you wouldn't do yourself
Don't make me do what you wouldn't do yourself
