Sinner's Prayer

Play Video
  • I came down the mountain
    Draggin' our love affair
    Put on a pretty little number
    I'm wearing you still
    It was a hell of a scene at daddy's feast
    Nobody saw it coming, but the little red devil in me
    He has a funny way saying forever too fast
    Don't get mad, can't blame a tramp
    For something he don't have
    I get on my knees and beg you

    Hear my sinner's prayer
    I am what I am
    And I don't wanna break the heart of any other man
    But you, but you
    Hear my sinner's prayer
    It's the only one I know
    It sure as hell don't rhyme
    But it's as good as, good as, good as, good as gold

    Got a baby sister who looks just like me
    She wants nothing more than a man to please
    Maybe she's in too deep
    Her love for him ain't cheap
    But it breaks just like a knockoff piece from Fulton Street
    The man's got a gift for getting what he wants
    He's thirsty when he drinks
    Gets on the brink, and throws her off
    I get on my knees and beg you

    Hear my sinner's prayer
    I am what I am
    And I don't wanna break the heart of any other man
    But you, but you
    Hear my sinner's prayer
    It's the only one I know
    It sure as hell don't rhyme
    But it's as good as, good as, good as, good as gold
    Good as, good as, good as, good as gold

    I can carry you, but not your ghosts
    Wish I had the faith, but I don't know, oh

    Hear my sinner's prayer
    I am what I am
    And I don't wanna break the heart of any other man
    But you, but you
    Hear my sinner's prayer
    It's the only one I know
    It sure as hell don't rhyme
    But it's as good as, good as, good as, good as gold
    Good as, good as, good as, good as gold
    Good as, good as, good as, good as gold Writer/s: Stefani Germanotta, Josh Tillman, Mark Ronson, THomas Brenneck
