LyricsEdit

And I hope I didn't do you in
I hope I see you again
I'm lookin to apologize
For all of my childish lies
I'm ashamed I broke my word

And I'd like to catch up with your father now
And show him exactly how
The hate that has grown for him
How I've not the strength to forgive
Such a sin as this

Apologies roll off his tongue
I toned down his talkin' said I am the one
That came here to make good and right
To ease this girl's pain by taking your life
Apology's mine
Apology's mine
Apology's mine tonight

Love for a daughter you don't have to wait
Love can't explain it nor god's will nor fate would account for all you've lost

It might be over but it's not too late
Trading my freedom for setting things straight with a man that has it coming

And I bring in form of a violent deed
Revenge, my apology
The life of an evil man
His severed molesting hands
And a quiet relief for you

Apologies roll off his tongue
I toned down his talkin' said I am the one
That came here to make good and right
I'll ease this girl's pain by taking your life
Apology's mine
Apology's mine
Apology's mine tonight
