Track Name: Repent
Staring at the ceiling with dying eyes
Morphine relieving most of the pain
Still it hurts I have to cry
Thinking of my life and all its stains

I hope I can walk onto the pearly gates
God granting me salvation
I have to reconcile with a long lost faith
Don't want to die in a state of desolation
Please God forgive me for my sins
Longing for redemption before the afterlife begins
I regret all wrongdoings from my past
A clear conscience is all I ask

My life's been miserable, others I gave hell
This illnes seems to be my punishment
I don't wish for a disgaceful farewell
I repent my past and want a shameless end

Forgive me Father for I have sinned
I have no clue where to begin
Overwhelmed by the situation I am in
At my wits end, I'm almost floored
I'm sorry I have never confessed before
Please help me before I close life's door
Track Name: Bittersweet Memories
Mixed feelings about what we had and what could have been
Never thought there would come a time you would leave
Thinking back I probably was too blind to see
You were daceptive with tricks up your sleeve

Things were all fine or so it seemed
Your fake stories made my heart bleed
You could have been honest and tell me we were done
That would be something I could overcome
You decided to follow a different path
By telling lies that gave me fellings of wrath
You would rather spent time with some other
With being honest you couldn't be bothered

Leaving notes that said you would end it all
That really hurt and made me feel appalled
I took it hard 'cause I still had feelings
In the end that took a lot of healing

In hindsight I'm glad life took this turn
I would have given love you couldn't return
Looking back there were times of joy
Those memories I don't want to destroy
I hope you're content the way you are
I'm glad we parted without fighting a war
It's all over now, we're part of history
All that's left, bittersweet memories

Mixed feelings about what we had and what could have been
Never thought there would come a time you would leave
Thinking back I probably was too blind to see
Your deception is my bittersweet memory
