I’m Sorry

So, I’ve hurt my fair share of people just like we all will at some point in our lives.  We live with regrets and keep moving forward because Life and Time won’t let you slow down and have some time to yourself.  Time to mope and to cope.  A life free of the day to day stresses we, as humans, suffer from.

I’m sorry
It wasn’t about them, you, or me
knowing what happened under Our sun roof
and how I could see the moonlight in your tears
while trying to fix everything with a few words.
It wasn’t about trust, pain or lying.
Trust was already gone, never to return
to us as we mouthed the lies in our hearts.
Lies our lips had practiced so very well.
It wasn’t about trying to hurt you
It was about saving you from me
It wasn’t about trying to hurt you
It was about saving you from me

It was the growing decadence, and the thought of Hell
That hung from the cobwebs in hot movie theaters,
the heat tormenting my soul like an ageless fire.
It was a catharsis, my surrender to nature
Though we both cried on different shoulders
and farmer’s daughters could never compare.
It was the fail-safe mistake, my last ditch effort
Where I ruined everything, keeping you blameless,
only to sacrifice Us for You
It was the end of something perfect
It wasn’t supposed to end like this
It was the end of something perfect
It wasn’t supposed to end like this
