I apologise for consuming your air

I am so sorry for stifling the way you breathe

I thought you needed the attention

I realise now as I sit and grieve

I never thought I was doing damage

I never thought I was inflicting harm

I never saw our break-up coming

I didn't mean to kill your charm

I believe I can back off a bit

I know now that I was wrong

I want the you I loved to come back

I can tell you this in a song

I know now your reasons for stress

I understand how you felt inferior

I put you up on a pedestal

I just wanted you to feel superior

I can look back now and understand

I have only myself to blame

I never wanted you to fulfill my expectations

I should not expect you to love me the same

I'm sorry babe
