Martina Mcbride — When You Love A Sinner lyrics

When you love a sinner,
You hate the sin
You hate the temptress in the bottle
Seducin' him again
And you blame the cold
For the winter
When you love a sinner

I tell myself that everything's okay
I paint a pretty smile on my face
He lies and says, "he'll change"
But on his breath and in his veins
The truth still lingers
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/martina-mcbride-when-you-love-a-sinner-lyrics.html ]
Deep down, you know
That it's a crime
You know you didn't pull the trigger
But you're the one who does the time
And you pay the debt; you're the lender
You love a sinner

I tell myself that everything's okay
I paint a pretty smile on my face
But I'm slowly lettin' go
Cause in my heart I know
That I can't make him better

And I've been goin' under
And now I understand
You can't tread water
With a drownin' man

I love a sinner
I justify it how I can
So it's the sin
I'm leavin, not the man
