when you love a sinner,
you hate the sin
you hate the temptress in the bottle
seducin' him again
and you blame the cold
for the winter
when you love a sinner

I tell myself that everything's okay
I paint a pretty smile on my face
he lies and says, "he'll change"
but on his breath and in his veins
the truth still lingers

deep down, you know
that it's a crime
you know you didn't pull the trigger
but you're the one who does the time
and you pay the debt; you're the lender
you love a sinner

I tell myself that everything's okay
I paint a pretty smile on my face
but I'm slowly lettin' go
cause in my heart I know
that I can't make him better

and I've been goin' under
and now I understand
you can't tread water
with a drownin' man

I love a sinner
I justify it how I can
so it's the sin
I'm leavin, not the man
