All I want is one clean slate

This one is filled with scarlett letters

I feel so shamed and ashamed

banished and broken

don't tell me to let it go

I don't do these kinds of things

I'm not that kind of girl!

And drunkness is no defense

You seem to be sure that forgivness is guareenteed

But I'm not one who feels things are owed to me

Tell me true what do I have to do to feel the warmth of salvation?

There's no forgivness without atonement, I think

I could be wrong

But it doesn't feel wrong to me

It feels better than here

And right now that's enough

The End
