lyrics

AN ACT OF CONTRITION

Baby you're always sweet to me
Always treat me so lovingly
Always say you'll always love me
And you'll never leave

You bring me flowers every night
Make sure that everything is just right
And you always hold me tight

But it's just an act
An act of contrition
You just want to save yourself
I know you're only marking time

I know I said that it's all right
I know I said that we should not fight
I know that everyone does wrong
And that you'll do me right

From now on and never hurt me
I know that you will not desert me
I know you'll love me tediously

But it's just an act
An act of contrition
You just want to save yourself
I know you're only marking time

So if I should act
Act with suspicion
Oh don't be surprised me dear
I can't forget the things you've done

Well I have heard your confession
And I don't want to live out your sentence with you
I don't want to be just a penance for you
'Cause I still adore you

But your love's just an act
An act of contrition
You just want to save yourself
I know you're only marking time

So if I should act
Act with suspicion
Oh don't be surprised me dear
I can't forgive the things you've done

I know you're just marking time
I know you're just marking time
I know you're just marking time
I know you're just marking time...
