(Her Memory is) Punishment Enough

I’ll never need to get down on my knees again
Fill up another corner of my mind
Recriminations won’t keep me up at night
Her memory is punishment enough

Stupidity is the lord’s only immortal sin
His sentencing is swift and to the point
But I’ll never need to be arrested for my crimes
Her memory is punishment enough

Lies are only evil when you buy them like the truth
Sugar coated like a baby’s pill
But I’ll never have to swallow bitter medicine
Her memory is punishment enough

Words I thought were gospel from a silken tongue
Came back in anger when the weather turned
But lord, don’t ever let her take me back again
Her memory is punishment enough
