Lyrics

Earlina, please forgive me
I told you I'd forgotten her
But I lied

Earlina, I'm so sorry
I just couldn't stop my loving her
Lord knows I tried

Bridge:
Her sweet memory
Keeps haunting me
Night and day
It's here to stay
Won't go away

Earlina, I hope you understand
I'd only hurt you more
should I stay

Earlina, May God bless you
And help you with each step
Along the way

And help you with each step
Along lifes way
