"When You Love a Sinner" as written by and Jay/musgraves Clementi....
When you love a sinner,
You hate the sin
You hate the temptress in the bottle
For choosin' him again

And you blame the cold for the winter
When you love a sinner

I tell myself that everything's okay
I paint a pretty smile on my face
Your lovin' says, "he'll change"
But on his breath and in his veins
The truth still remains

Deep down, you know
That it's a crime
You know you didn't pull the trigger
But you're the one who does the time

And you pay the debt; you're the lender
When you love a sinner

I tell myself that everything's okay
I paint a pretty smile on my face
But I'm slowly lettin' go
'Cause in my heart I know
That I can't make him better

And I've been goin' under
And now I understand
That you can't tread water
With a drownin' man

I love a sinner
I justify it how I can
So, it's the sin I'm leavin', not the man
