Edward The Confessor

Original version (5:24)

I’m so sorry,
Please forgive me

For knowing that I’m wrong but insisting I’m right,
For wanting everything to be either black or white,
For wallowing in self-pity, confessing all my sins,
For studying my thoughts until my head caves in,
For all the things I’ve said but regret so much now,
For all the things I should have said but I couldn’t somehow,
For all the times I’ve met them, and I’ve known them for so long,
But I still get their names wrong.

I’m so sorry,
Please forgive me

For trying to be all things to all men,
For shelving my objectives time and time again,
For looking for perfection in everything I do
When really I need only look as far as you.
For demanding to be loved by someone new each year
And dispatching them quietly over a pint of beer.
Well yeah, I did it without malice and I did it without shame
But I did it, just the same.

I’m so sorry,
Please forgive me.

I’m so sorry,
Please forgive me.


For coming home from work in the middle of the night,
For waking you up with the bathroom light,
For wanting to touch you with these cold, cold hands,
For wanting to have you just because I can,
For always running from an argument when I ought to stand and fight,
For suppressing my emotions ‘cause I’m too goddamn polite.
And then for thinking that by simply saying sorry
I could suddenly make everything all right.

And I’m so sorry,
I’m so sorry,
Please forgive me.
Please forgive me.
I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry,
Please forgive me. Please forgive me.
