about

"...and forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us...". Sometimes that is hard to do, but I believe I do forgive you. You know who you are.

lyrics

Everything I say you twist against me;
Everything you do fuels my fire.
How can there be peace with all this history?
How can there be love without desire?
I say that I forgive you -
I believe I do forgive you -
But I wouldn't trust you far as
I could THROW YOU OUT MY DOOR.

CHORUS:
What's a boy to do?
What's a boy to do?
You've stolen everything that never really gave me
what I really needed anyway -
What's this boy to do?

Everything you say is indirectly;
Everything I do is on the side.
How can there be joy with all this misery?
How can there be love with all this pride?
I say all is forgiven -
I believe all is forgiven -
But there really is no livin'
When you’re CONDEMNED TO THE CORE.

CHORUS

You want me to beg forgiveness
for the wrongs I never did?
You want me to bow and worship
and let you doddle on my kids?
You want me to buy some Hallmark card
and fake my jubilation
and bring my presence to some GA-LA EV-ENT
when I was on the far side of the nation
so I gave my prompt reply
but you had the NERVE TO LIE

CHORUS

I say that I forgive you -
I believe I do forgive you -

Perhaps better known as one half of the Delta Twins, "Sky" is a prolific composer with alter egos to suit each style of music. Here he explores an indie/folk/acoustic sound while playing all the instruments.

He's not one to limit himself to one genre. Perhaps that's the basis for his "Sky's The Limit Studios". Or maybe because his high school basketball nickname was "Sky". Or...?
