Saints and Sinners

I’m a saint and I’m a sinner

Skeptic and a true believer

I obey most all the rules

But still I’m a rebel

At heart and at my centre

‘Cause I’m a saint and I’m a sinner

Skeptic and a true believer

Lost my way, then I found it

On the way to new beginnings

Just another kind of lesson

Where I’m a saint and I’m a sinner

Full of many contradictions

On the road to where it takes me

Wherever that ends up

In which direction warm wind blows

I guess I’ll go there

Full of all those contradictions

‘Cause I’m a saint and I’m a sinner

Skeptic and a true believer

Learning on the run

Watching as the lessons flow

Going fast and going slow

Where I’m a saint and I’m a sinner

Skeptic and true believer

Full of many contradictions

Saints

Sinners

Misconceptions

So I wait for you

Just like you wait for me

As angels sing their song

To both skeptics

And the true believers

  1. Oh, I love the repetition in this piece–adds to the musicality. This reads like lyrics. Well done.

  2. Thanks – I might move this to the “Songs” category.
