Wrong again
Father, I hate to tell you this
You taught me how to hit the mark
But once again I missed

Touch the fire
You always said that I'd get burned
Why is it so hard to remember
All the lessons I have learned?

How can you look at me that way
When I have failed so many times?
Showing me love, you tell the world
"This child is mine"
(This child is mine)
How can you walk that extra mile?
I see forgiveness in your smile
So sure you'd reject me
Wrong again

Once again
Lord, I have wandered from your path
Thought I knew a better way
Falling short of what you've asked

Standing here
(Standing here)
I don't deserve a second chance
And I can't conceal the shame I feel
It's more than I can stand

How can you look at me that way
When I have failed so many times?
Showing me love, you tell the world
"This child is mine"
(This child is mine)
How can you walk that extra mile?
I see forgiveness in your smile
So sure you'd desert me
Wrong again

When I look into your face
And see the power of your grace
I find it so hard to believe
Forgiveness that you're showing me
I see the answer in your eyes
Love and mercy realized
Finally the truth has set me free

How can you look at me that way
When I have failed so many times?
Showing me love, you tell the world
"This child is mine"
(This child is mine)
How can you walk that extra mile?
I see forgiveness in your smile

I thought you would scold me
Instead you just hold me
Thought you would judge me
Instead, you just love me
So sure you'd reject me
Wrong again
