lyrics

I’m singing this song for all the sinners in the room
We know who we are and why we do what we do
We love too hard too fast too loose
We love too deep too dear too soon

Sinners and lovers
Cry out your complaints
No one will meet us at the prison gates
Sinners and lovers
Cry out your complaints
The echo is hollow but don't it sound great

I fall in love a dozen times a day
I promise them all promises better men would never make
My heart is always true but my mind is a wave
It billows, it builds, it peaks and it brakes

I had a brother who was simple and strong
His only plan was to make no plans at all
He slept deeply at night without a trouble or a care
No dreams, no drama, no danger no prayer

I saw myself so clearly upon the widest stage
The songs that I'd be singing would ring out, never fade
I'd speak for the people too quiet and afraid
O! to sing something true, delicate, and brave

What is a sinner but a man too weak to win
What is a lover who cannot love within
What is a life but a row of tin cans
That wait to be hit, or to rust where they stand

I'm singing this song for all us sinners in the room
We know who we are and why we do what we do
We loved too hard too fast too loose
We loved too deep too dear too soon
