I was afraid of death and I don't get how you could pretend to be not
You've no concern in betraying your family or whether or not you'll be caught
Crime used to pay you so much
Less so today

We know who you are and we know what you came for
We know what you want and we know what to aim for
Now I am not as angry as I thought I'd be
That you are the one
You are the one
And you are not as careful as you ought to be
Keep dreamin' on
Keep dreamin' on

I can climb to formidable heights with no rope or a second of thought
I can save or destroy you should you need assistance or need to be fought
I've made mistakes I can't change
I've shied away
Shouldered the blame
No more, no way

Crime used to pay you so

I know I had to leave you
I know you had to lie
I know that you feel guilty
But you don't have to hide
I see you on the mountain
The future in your eyes
I forgive you...
