I'm Sorry. I'm Sorry.
You reach out a helping hand
as you try to understand
the fleeting thoughts that fill my head
of pretty flowers now dead
You want nothing more than to make me better
but I only see your eyes get wetter.
The desperation in your face
looks to me like burned lace.
I am sorry this is what I’ve caused,
everyone’s happiness has been paused.
I didn’t mean to make you hurt
staring at your ripped out heart laying in the dirt.
You only want to know what’s wrong
why my life sounds like a sad song.
Do you see what I’ve done?
My mind has plagued everyone.
I’m really am trying, please know
that one day my demons will be let go.
And even if that isn’t true,
a piece of my soul still fights for you.
So wipe your eyes and lift your head
I am not completely dead
Times of darkness will come and go
But I will always love you so.
