JUST A SINNER Lyrics

Artist: Carly Simon
Album: Carly Simon

(Mark Klingman)

Today I was gonna conquer the world,
Go on ahead and make a stand.
Today I saw an old friend a dyin'
And as he lay there no one lent a hand,
I'm gonna call you up,
You'll forsake the one you love,
Though I've left you many times before -
You are just a sinner.

I was the one who understands,
You were my one and only man.
I was lost, now I'm the winner.
You stand there waitin' by the shore,
But I don't come that way no more,
Because you are just a sinner.

Today I was gonna hold out my hand,
Reach up for that light and let it shine.
Today I have no light to guide me
Feelin' like the one they left behind,
So I called you up,
You left your love and took me away,
Though I've left you many times before-
You are just a sinner.

I am the only one, you see,
You were the only one for me,
I was lost, now I'm the winner.
You'll keep the candle burning bright,
But I won't be home tonight,
Because you are just a sinner.

Today I was gonna conquer the world,
Go on ahead and make a stand.
Today I saw an old friend a dyin',
And as he lay there, no one lent a hand.
