Back to Halfway to Jackson lyrics

Half Way To Jackson (Live)

She comes to me in the night when loneliness
Is too much to bear and she holds me close
And she helps me forget
You go steppin' out as she comes steppin' in
Someday I'll be forgiven for this

'Cause you just ain't got the time that you used to
Well, you say you love me
And deep inside hell I know you do
So stop your crying now
I'm already convinced that
Someday I'll be forgiven for this

Yeah and if I know you
You won't have nothing to say
You'll just clear the tears from your eyes
Long enough to watch me walk away
You won't curse or scream, no nothing that obscene
You'll just tell yourself you never loved me anyway

So tonight when you leave
Put the light out on the porch
Take anything that you want to keep
And leave your key in the door
And I don't want to hear you crying
No tears that show regret

'Cause someday you'll be forgiven for this
Oh, yeah, someday you'll be forgiven for this
