St Peters Gates

I knocked on all doors tonight
They left me out
in the cold
no wandering souls about

If I were to sing
my old melodies of yore
would you come
try my sins abhorred

Its all quiet now
in those lost shores
no heart beats there
no love lives anymore

If I were to walk
these lost roads
would you let me in
and not leave me out in the cold?

Last breath arrives
like a cold knife in the rain
my sins flash past
as I welcome the pain

If I were to cry tonight
live a penance
would you help me live
and forget my remembrance?
