Today I am drowning in the promises I never got to keep,

Wishing you was near sleeping here with me.

And so I am lamenting what I’ve done to you,

I blame my youth and pride for not knowing what to do.

It’s not that I can’t live without but I don’t want to try,

From feeling your embrace I have been deprived.

The plot of this story I begin to see,

I’m the antagonist, who’s begging for you, please,

Forgive me…

My love, I try to try to reckon a new start,

And I also try to get you out of my heart.

I try to banish all the tears that I made you shed,

And the hurtful words that to you I said.

It’s pointless when my eyes are trapped inside your eyes,

Baby, to forget you I really try to try.

Some days I reminisce and I do recall,

I never valued you and now it’s all my fault.

I underestimated that you were so strong,

And that of me one day you’d actually let go.

I’m sorry for the wounds but I have come to see,

No matter what I do you won't come back to me.

I hope you see the sorrow coming from my heart,

Mercy is all I’m asking to come from your part.

Believe me…
