Forgive me

Spoken for

In Ildikó Enyedi's terrific movie "On Body and Soul" Laura Marling's "What he wrote" plays an important role:

"He wrote,
I'm broke
Please send for me
But I'm broken too,
And spoken for
Do not, tempt me
Forgive me, here, I cannot stay
Cut out my tongue, there is nothing to say
Love me oh lord, he threw me away
He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must stay"

To laugh at other people's sins, that's a beginning.
