I lie awake
Can’t fall sleep
Thoughts of you
Leave me weak.

Can’t escape
Can’t run , can’t hide
So much regret
I’m paralyzed.

How could I be
So cold, so cruel?
Now plagued with memories
And thoughts of you.

When I left
You wept, you cried
I led you on
I told you lies.

I didn’t know
Just what to do
I was mixed up
I was confused.

Now those feelings
Of loss and regret
Are haunting me daily
I can’t forget.

Forgive me … please
For hurting you
I’m sorry for what
I put you through.
