"Once A Thief"

So you've decided to set me free
I've paid my debt to society
Fresh out of jail trying to make a new start
On the street with a bitter heart
But my past keeps on haunting me
There ain't no chance for a man with my history
 
Once a thief
Always a suspect
Once a liar
Never be believed
Will they ever forget that
I was once a thief?
 
I was out in the cold
I was soaked to the skin
I needed a home
And your heart took me in
Then I heard all the lies
And I lost my belief
You threw away my hope
And you called me a thief
 
So you've decided to set me free
I'm out of jail but you've still got the key
There was a time when I thought you respected me
But somehow you always suspected me
 
Once a thief
Always a suspect
Once a liar
Never be believed
Will they ever forget that
I was once a thief?
 
Instead of offering me charity,
You should've tried to put some faith in me
Instead of making me a better man,
You kept reminding me of what I am
 
Instead of offering me charity,
You should've tried to put some faith in me
How many years must a criminal pay?
Until he's old and his hair turns to gray
You smile at me
But I know underneath
You're thinking
Once a thief always a suspect.
 
Once a thief
Always a suspect
Once a liar
Never be believed
Will they ever forget that
I was once a thief?
