How Many Times

    How Many Times

    A folk ballad telling the story of a prodigal son.
     
    How many times before you let me go
    How many times before the wounds no longer heal
    How many times must I break your heart
    Before you just give up and let me slip away

    You were always faithful, you were always true
    All the times I tried to roam, you would not let me go
    You would not desert me, you always brought me home
    And like a cross you had to bear, you would not let me go
    You would not let me go

    How many times have you forgiven me
    How many times have you saved me from myself
    How many times have you rescued me
    So many times your love has brought me to my knees

    You were always faithful, you were always true
    All the times I tried to roam, you would not let me go
    You would not desert me, you always brought me home
    And like a cross you had to bear, you would not let me go
    You would not let me go
