Sins Laid Bare

In the stillness of the night

Something just didn’t feel quite right

She was out on the town again

Claiming she was out with friends

From late evening til two a.m.

When she finally came waltzing in

He asked point blank, “where you been, and don’t spin me a lie again”

Then she looked at him with tear filled eyes, she knew it was confession time

She said “I’ve been seeing another man, it’s been going on a while, and honestly the worst part is, he’s the father of “our” child”

He broke down and cried, when he heard her sins laid bare

He said “our boy is still mine, even if he came from your affair, because all this time, I’m the father who’s been there”
