I wish I could take
Away the mistakes I make
I wish I could go back in time.
When I still had you
When you loved me too...
But I commited a love crime.
Everyday I sit and think
And everyday you seem to shrink
Oh... what was going through my head?
I had it all
We had a ball
But I slept in someone else's bed.
I wish I could right
This monstrous blight
But its not up to me to choose.
I broke your heart
I tore it apart
Its my fault we had to lose.
I know its no use
To say "sorry", thats an excuse
Because too many times you've heard that lie.
But I pray and hope
That time will help us cope
And end the silent tears I cry.
If one wish I was granted
I would wish for your branded
Heart to heal and trust.
Because nothing can undo
What I did to you
Selfish, greedy, and with lust.
I think you would have been
Better in life, of what I've seen
If I was never there.
I wouldn't have ruined your life
Caused you such strife
Put you through such dispair.
I cannot change the past but pray
That maybe you and me someday
Can finally come to terms.
Its what we deserve
To heal the raw nerve
Forgiveness is what my heart yearns.
Because I really do miss you
The feelings I had were true
I miss everything we once were.
I could never hate
Or forget loving you, I'll wait
For you to forgive me last, once more.
