You can’t fool around where the sinner’s found,
Make friends of the foolish kind,
But it leaves some taint, like the mark of paint,
On your heart or your soul or your mind.
By the way, if this page isn’t what you’re looking for, I have a HUGE list of inspirational quotes by topic here.
You may say you can, and you may think you can,
That you’ll keep your own hands clean,
But it leaves a mark that is deep and dark,
A mark that you have not seen,
For sin is a thing that will always cling,
Though you only meant to play;
It will leave some stain on the heart or brain
That is hard to wash away.
You can’t paint black and not get black,
You can’t fool around with sin,
It will leave its trace on the human face,
Its mark on the soul within.
By the words you use and the friends you choose,
You are made for the years to be;
You may think they’ll not, but they’ll leave a blot,
For the rest of the world to see.
