Can I say I’m sorry and mean it?
Can I say I’m sorry and you’ll believe it?
Can I say I‘m sorry and be forgiven?
Can I say I’m sorry and know I will be?

I’m sorry for the hurt you now feel
I know it wasn’t part of the deal
Sometimes things happen they do
I got too close, I fell in love with you.

I thought I was free to move forward
Finally a life of love, my reward
The angels came and had their way
Me and you no longer had a say.

Now we both suffer from broken heart
We should have never let this start
Somehow the truth is we did
A love that we couldn’t forbid.

The love we shared I’ll never regret
I guess life together wasn’t to be set
Though separately life we will endeavor
A part of my heart belongs to you forever.

My feelings are still very strong
A love for you that was wrong
I should have ran the other way
Sadness is now the cost we pay.

I’m truly sorry for the part I played
The cost of hurting you wasn’t weighed
My heart to you wasn’t mine to give
Of me I hope you will please forgive.
