I want to make you feel what I feel
so you can understand
how I have changed,
And not because of your demand.
I want your eyes to pierce my soul
so then you might see
how much I love you
and that forever faithful I’ll be!
I have made mistakes in the past
This is no secret to you or I.
But if you’ll give me a chance
you will see that for you I would die!
My heart hurts with every tear you taste!
I want to take it all back!
But unfortunately I fear
the damage is done no matter how I act.
You are my love, my forever soul mate!
I knew it the night we met,
and I know it still today.
I pray everyday that our past we might forget!
I know I hurt you and believe me,
I am eternally scared from the inside out.
However, I know it doesn’t compare
to what you are forced to think about.
When I look into your tear-soaked eyes
I see that everlasting pain.
I hurt the person who trusted me most
Now I fear it is that which I will never regain.
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like
If things hadn’t happened as they did.
It makes me sick inside because I know
Your heart, from me, you wouldn’t have hid.
Now I know that old saying is so true.
“You reap what you sew.”
A mistake today will almost always
be someone else's sorrow tomorrow.
