lyrics

I was living with a stranger
From the very first day
Living there in danger
In the very worst way
I had my dreams then
And I believed then
All I could see was the best
My crime is silence
I didn’t shine the light
I should’ve cried out
I should’ve told the truth
That very first day

I was living amongst strangers
From the very first day
Jealousy commanded
That hard religious way
It drove their drinking
Their twisted thinking
It wore me to the bone
My crime is silence
I didn’t shine the light
I should’ve cried out
I should’ve told the truth
That very first day

I was living with a stranger
From the very first day
The sky too high above me
The wind blew me away
They bled my life blood
The good ground where I stood
They took my children and left the blame
My crime is silence
I didn’t shine the light
I should’ve cried out
I should’ve told the truth
That very first day

I was living with a stranger
From the very first day
Living there in danger
In the very worst way
He set me up high
So he could take it all
I didn’t know then
How far he’d make me fall
My crime is silence
I didn’t shine the light
I should’ve cried out
I should’ve told the truth
But I was living with a stranger
From the very first day
