lyrics

I want a horse, I want a dog
I want a man and to find God
I need some help so I can see
The wicked living beautifully

The other day I killed a fly
And then I wrote a lullaby
Does that make me a hypocrite
To sing of life and then kill it?

I am a sinner and I have sinned
But I love this life I’m livin’

I was taught to be kind
And always told to speak my mind
But there are days when I find
It’s damn hard to do both at the same time

And when the Devil sits here next to me
Her words lash out so viciously
I have asked her time and time again
Please find yourself another friend

I am a sinner and I have sinned
But I love this life I’m livin’
Yeah I love this life I’m livin’
Oh I love this life I’m livin’

And I’ve been told once, maybe twice
Little girls should always be so nice
I will try to be what you want me to
But I guarantee, that there are days I will lash out at you

When I look at the TV
The newscaster she speaks to me
She says he has died so you’ll be free
And that’s when I wonder
Was he ready? To die.
Did he choose it or did I?

There’s evil in this world I see
And some of it it lives in me
If God were here I hope He’d say
You need the dark to see the light of day

I am a sinner and I have sinned
But I love this life I’m livin’

I am a sinner and I will sin
For as long as I am livin’
