I've said and done many things I regret,
things I wish I could just forget.
With our love, I hoped we could overcome,
any obstacle, of any sum.

I imagined us hand-in-hand,
flying away from this land.
Only you and I together,
flying in the heavens forever.
With both our hearts beating as one,
we would be as children playing in the sun.

I remember things going very well,
for our love my soul would I sell.
The many things to come, we could'nt foretell
problems I wish, I could just dispell.

We had an argument one day,
with this many problems came our way.
For the things I had said, as you sat there on my bed,
many things I was to say,
and all I had wanted was for you to stay.

You had given me all of your time,
and wanting your love was my only crime.
My love, you were right and I was wrong,
so I now apologize to you in this song.
All I had wanted was to make you happy,
and all I've done is make you unhappy.

My love, my apology comes straight from the heart,
and I ask you now for a brand new start.
Sweetheart, please forgive me,
I just could'nt see; the unhappiness I had given to thee.

I'll never forgive myself for what I've done.
The horrible words forming from my tongue.
My life is now empty without you,
I just don't know what else to do.

I've shed many tears tonight,
knowing I am now alone in my flight.
I've worked hard to regain my sight,
so please, honey, lets not fight.

I love you and I always will!!
When I see you, my heart stands still.
I can't remember the last time I felt this way,
so once again I ask you "Please Stay?"

For your presence alone I do pray,
my love to you I do convey.
I don't know how all of this could've happened,
life without you, I could've never fathomed.
In your arms alone could I possibly survive,
your love I would never deny.

It is'nt until now that I begin to realize,
that it's your happiness you've been deprived.
Something you should have never been denied.

"Why," I ask myself" Why have I done this to you?"
Such heartache, you were never due.
Your love you had given to very few,
and I've thrown it away without a clue.
How could I have been so unaware,
of the love I had which was so rare.

You had sacrificed so much for me,
changing even your sensitivity.
What had I done to change myself,
knowing you had given so much of yourself.
These are questions I've spent hours pondering,
I find no answers only my mind wandering.

So I ask you now, don't decide,
in our love do confide,
and in the truth do reside.
For we will make it through,
because I know our love is true.

You have done so much for me,
I just don't understand why I could'nt see.
You've given me the strength to survive,
the courage to cry,
and the will to try.
Your side I will never depart,
and you've known this from the start.
All these words come from the heart,
and I hope that we will never part....
