lyrics

I was wrong, you were right
Feeling too weak to stand up and fight
Had my reasons, you had yours
Yours were foolproof, mine were flawed

Burning bridges, since I was young
Doesn't change how I carried on
Let's call a parley, and start again
This time I'll wake up a different man

And I'll repeat it until you trust
I am sorry for hurting us
All we can do now is learn and grow
I am wiser, before I didn't know

You were pencil, I was pen
The things I said there, wouldn't say again
I know for certain I can make it right
Let me show you an unfamiliar sight

Cause I am pleading, I will beg
Get down on my knees
Take back the words I said

And I'll repeat it until you trust
I am sorry for hurting us
All we can do now is learn and grow
I am wiser, before I didn't know

Burning bridges, since I was young
Doesn't change how I carried on
Let's call a parley, and start again
This time I'll wake up a different man
