Dust in the Wind

Tell everybody that I am sorry, truly sorry 
For all the wrong I've done 
I never meant to hurt nobody, no no
Lord I never want to do no wrong 

And I have lied, and I have begged and I have cheated 
And I know my ship, it won't be coming in 
And as I lay me down to take my rest 
I can see that it's just dust in the wind 

Take hold my hand, and hold it tighter, ever tighter 
You must believe that I love you still 
But my strength, it grows weaker, and weaker 
And my body has lost its will 

'Cause I have lied, and I have begged and I have cheated 
And I know my ship, it won't be coming in 
And as I lay me down to take my rest 
I can see that it's just dust in the wind 

Oh Lord, I have lost once again 
And there's no one to help me find my way home  
Lord and I, Lord I never want to hurt nobody
And I, Lord I never want to do no wrong
 
'Cause I have lied, and I have begged and I have cheated 
And I know my ship, it won't be coming in 
And as I lay me down to take my rest 
I can see that it's just dust in the wind
