"I’m sorry”, “I’m sorry”; is all that I say,

It seems I am mistaken every single day.

I’m sorry for my attitude, I’m sorry for my words,

I’m sorry but these things I’m considering absurd.

 

I know that I’m not perfect, I completely understand,

But frankly these apologies are getting out of hand.

Could it be that I’m mistaken nearly all the time?

Or are you making me believe that I’m the one unkind?

 

You make me feel guilty; you make me feel wrong,

You put me in places where I don’t belong.

I know that I’m moody and I pick a fight,

But I’m not alone; it’s not like you’re right.

 

I’m trying my best; can you not tell?

Spare me the drama you’re trying to sell.

You’re making me doubt in what I hold in my heart,

Is this what you want to tear me apart?

 

I’m sorry for everything I’ve done,

It seems to be I’m the only bad one.

You have left me broken and helpless on the ground,

You’ve ignored my tears as you turned around.

 

No, I’m not perfect but I’ve let go of pride,

I’m the only woman who’s still by your side.

Enough with the labels and don’t criticize,

I now know my worth and I won’t apologize.
