"Someday I'll Be Forgiven for This" as written by and Justin Townes Earle....
She comes to me in the night when loneliness
Is too much to bear and she holds me close
And she helps me forget
You go steppin' out as she comes steppin' in
Someday I'll be forgiven for this

Cause you just ain't got the time that you used to
Well you say you love me and deep inside hell I know you do
So stop your crying now
I'm already convinced that someday I'll be forgiven for this

Yeah, and if I know you
You won't have nothing to say
You'll just clear the tears from your eyes
Long enough to watch me walk away
You won't curse or scream, no nothing that obscene
You'll just tell yourself you never loved me anyway

So tonight when you leave
Put the light out on the porch
Take anything that you want to keep and leave your key in the door
And I don't want to hear you crying no tears that show regret

Cause someday you'll be forgiven for this

Oh, yeah, someday you'll be forgiven for this.

    General Commentthere's something about justin townes earle's songs that evoke such emotion. I find myself listening to the same song for hours on repeat due to the simple honesty in his words and utter beauty that is his execution. His lyrics truly hit deep in the heart.

    i've been privileged to see him live twice and hopefully so many more to come

    --

    i believe this is the most powerful part of the song:

    "And I don't want to hear you crying no tears that show regret. Cause someday you'll be forgiven for this"

    a depiction of an affair and the confusion of a young woman.
