Open the gate; father.
Let me in.

I want to come home.
 Forgive my sin.

My life was hard and short.
Don't make me suffer anymore.

I did my best in the time I had.
Please don't hold my failures against me.

How long must I stand here and plea?
They always taught me you hated tears.

Am I so unlovable that you will turn from me?
If you cast me aside, where will I go from here?

I am your child, weak and oh, so flawed.
Can you not take pity on me?

Open the gate; father.
Give me another chance.
