She never wanted a baby
It would just complicate her life
But after years of wine and roses
She became somebody's wife
And he had always dreamed of children
So she reluctantly gave in
And when she held her newborn daughter
She felt her life finally begin

She cried, my darling, please forgive me
I've been been lost and I've been blind
Trying to fill the empty places
While you've been waiting all this time
One true thing is all I want
One pure light to shine on through
Oh, my darling, please forgive me
I didn't know it was you

He never thought he would marry
Too many women to explore
And even standing at the altar
He knew, somehow, he wanted more
Until the night he almost lost her
He kneeled beside her bed and cried
For all the love he never gave her
He felt so ashamed inside

He cried, my darling, please forgive me
I've been been lost and I've been blind
Trying to fill the empty places
While you've been waiting all this time
One true thing is all I want
One pure light to shine on through
Oh, my darling, please forgive me
I didn't know it was you

We walk this road in trouble
With an ache inside our souls
We can't hide it with religion
We can't buy it off with gold

And the pleasures we all reach for
They're just masters of disguise
While there is power in the glory
of what lies right before our eyes

Oh dear father please forgive us
We've been lost and we've been blind
Trying to fill the empty places
While you've been waiting all this time
One true thing is all we want
One pure light to shine on through
Oh, dear father, please forgive us
We didn't know it was you
