I’m sorry – for so many things that you don’t understand
I’m sorry that I failed at being a better man.
I’m sorry I didn’t protect you like I should’ve
I would go and try this all again if I could.
But it’s all gone like water under a bridge
It’s the end of this road so it seems
Just have to soldier on, take the lessons I learnt
Maybe someone will one day dull the hurt
Maybe next time I’ll have to play this again
Or maybe they’ll be the one who helps me stand
I don’t know which I want more
To be the tower – the heroic prince in war
Or a battered helpless raft adrift
Rescued by passing cruise ship
It feels like this time I was both parts
And somehow I lost your heart
I kick myself for what it became
But if I replayed, would it really change?
Is it just me, or was this destiny?
Was it you, was it me, or was it we?
Only you know your side
And only I can see my fight
I live surrounded by magnificent defeats
And treasure tiny victories
If there’s one thing, I’m going to do it tonight.
It’s to say, “I’m sorry.” I wasn’t right.
Somewhere somehow, you failed too
But this here is about me, not you.
So I’m sorry. So very sorry.
Because this feels like an empty apology.
I can’t fix it – can’t make it right.
Not because I didn’t: God knows I tried
And while it feels like it’s all me – God knows why
He’s watched every dry tear I’ve cried.
I mean this from the deepest part of me
I’m sorry. I wish there was a remedy.
