the lord made me leave you
you know i did not want to
but the lord made me leave you

so, no, you cannot blame me
'cause he already forgave me
god already forgave me

and all my laws are written down in stone
trust in them and not in flesh and bone
don't throw it all away for love - you'll end up all alone
am i alone?

he said: "don't you be naive
just let her go - don't grieve her
she's just an unbeliever"

and if you try to argue
he said i'd do well to remind you
i only loved you 'cause i tried to

i only loved you 'cause i tried to

she says: "do we both really have to believe?
i'll sanctify you, or you could sanctify me
else were our children unclean -
now they're holy

and if we get to heaven
together or separate
there'll be no wives or husbands

so really what's the difference?"
