I'm Sorry, Babe, If I Ever Hurt Your Feelings


The more we see each other

The more I wanna spend the rest of my life with you

You have ben the queen

Of all of my dreams

And I just wanna make up

For all those times I was mean

I was high on coffee

When already paranoid

I accused you

Selfishly thinking of myself

I know you are doing your best

It isn't easy to love me

12 have failed before

That's a dozen times I should have learned

But I've never gone this far before

Over the past month without coffee

I have kept myself from anger

But I still feel the pain

I still blew up at you

Because I'm possessive in a way

So afraid to go back to singlehood

I still don't deserve you anyway

So I thank you for understanding enough

To not throw me away just yet

I know I have to change

If I wanna be kept forever

I fear after our anniversary

That you will leave me

So I know I have to change

I'm sorry that I hurt you

My only hope is that that changes

When I see the day

That we never argue

And that ev'rything can be perfect

That, if you are really wrong

I can forgive you and correct you

Without a fight breaking out

And cussing come out of my mouth

We both have a lot off defaults

And I understand that if I wanna keep you

We have to work around them

If I don't want you to go away

You give yourself to me as a gift

And I'm tired of letting you down

I regretfully feel ashamed

For ever treating you that way

I just want our wounds to heal

If there are any in the way
