Mama I'm Sorry

Mama I'm sorry I'm not your perfect little girl

I say things and do things that I don't mean at all

I know it's not hard to forgive and difficult to forget

All the things that I've said that you'll say I'll regret


Mama I'm sorry I'm not your perfect little girl

You've bruised and battered me

But I stood like a stone

And tried not cry as you could see


And now, that you are gone from my life

I feel so alone you see

Empty, shallow, a castaway at sea


Mama I'm sorry I'm not your perfect little girl

Under a house with lock and key

How I can understand why you wanted to leave me


I understand why you work under the sun

To come home and take care of me when the day is done

You slave away for my sake


My life that's on the line

And I take you for granted

When it comes time


Mama I'm sorry I'm not your perfect little girl

The things that I have said to you

Crashed down our little world

One day in the near future

You hope you'll come up to me and say

That you're proud of me

And I'll always love you forever and a day


Now, as I lie here

I deserve to be dead

For all your love is drained from me

And I have regretted instead

They're staring at me

All the things that I have said

They're closing in

Overrunning me with guilt for what I have done for dead


I've sinned a life of solitude

I've shunned and hurt your heart

I've made sure that the bond we had

Have been forever driven apart


But right now, I want to be the bigger man

The one to first forgive

The one to reach out my hand

And say sorry for all the things I did


I'm sorry Mama

I love you so much

Regardless of what you and I say

And I will prove it to you soon

In the coming day


I'll make sure I stand up

And get back on my feet

I'll make sure I'll prove to you

You make my life complete


Now, as this apology comes to an end

There is only one thing to do

Mama I'm sorry I'm not your perfect little girl

But I will always love you.
