​Don't You Remember

This song is by Wayne Watson and appears on the album Field Of Souls (1995).

You've got my file right in front of You
That's it, that's right, that's me
My bag of sorrows and my sack of blues
Every doubt, my unbelief
Oh, see, I've got page after page
After pitiful page, a list that never ends
Feel the need to bring up these old bones again

Don't You remember all the times I failed You
All the times I wandered away
And don't You remember all of my offenses
Walking with the fools on parade?
I know You'd really like to help me out
But You don't even know what I'm talking about
It's not so much that You don't remember
It's more that You choose to forget

How does it work that omniscient God
Can wipe the slate so clean
That if you looked for a single spot
A single spot could not be seen?
Oh, still I've got page after page after
Pitiful page locked in my memory
Then I heard Him when He said to me:

Don't you remember I promised to forgive ya?
Gone as far as east from the west
And don't you remember I promised to be faithful
Wash away the sin you confess? Oh, yeah
You know I'd really like to help you out
But I don't even know what you're talking about
It's not so much that I don't remember
But it's more that I choose to forget, ah, yeah

(Oh, yeah)

Don't you remember I promised to forgive ya?
Gone as far as east from the west
And don't you remember I promised to be faithful
Wash away the sin you confess? Oh, yeah
You know I'd really like to help you out
But I don't even know what you're talking about
It's not so much that I don't remember
But it's more that I choose to forget

Don't you remember I promised to forgive ya?
Gone as far as east from the west
And don't you remember I promised to be faithful
Wash away the sin you confess? Oh, yeah
You know I'd really like to help you out
But I don't even know what you're talking about
It's not so much that I don't remember
But it's more that I choose to forget
