Judge me, please



Don’t judge me by my past
'cause I don't live there anymore
Don’t judge me for what I do
You don't know my reasons or my chore


And don't judge me, my short love
Because forgetting you, was so long
Don't judge me for how I act
'cause you weren't there, when I cracked

Don't judge, don't say
“If I were you, I’d be brave”
Don't give me, clich├ęs
My burdens you don't weigh

My burdens, my burdens
You don’t weigh my burdens
Step in my shoes, come walk, just once
Yes, these scorched tan tattered ones

And then...

Go ahead and judge me, all my friends
If you don't know me, nobody can
To the shadowy corners of your heart
Silently crawl, go ahead and judge me all

Go ahead and judge this dark song
Give me something to prove you wrong
Go ahead and judge me, thick as thieves
It’s no longer a grief, no longer a grief
