You know that thing You told me not to
Last night I went and did it again.
I really should just run from this battle,
Cause it seems like I’m never gonna win

And when I woke up this mornin’, I felt different
Like a piece of me has somehow up and gone.
I guess that comes from leaving You,
Cause I’ve been Yours for so long.

And everyone seems to think I’ve got it together
They don’t know I’m fallin’ apart
Now I’m writin’ this apology letter
When I really should just let You have my broken heart.

I’m sorry, but I’m human.
I’m sorry I keep making the same mistakes
And I’m sorry if all I’m doing
Is taking advantage of Your grace
I’m sorry that apologies
Are all I’ve got to say
And I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t ask
But could I still be okay?

I know You had some big plans for me
And I’m sorry if I messed it all up
I’m sorry that I worry so much,
That I don’t trust You enough

I’m sorry I kept at it,
That I let it go on for so long.
It’s not that I won’t admit You were right,
I just won’t do anything about bein’ wrong

I’m sorry I’m holdin’ back a lot of me,
That I gave him what should’ve been Yours
I’m broken and dirty now,
But if You’ll take me back, I know You have the cures

I’m sorry, but I’m human.
I’m sorry I keep making the same mistakes
And I’m sorry if all I’m doing
Is taking advantage of Your grace
I’m sorry that apologies
Are all I’ve got to say
And I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t ask
But could I still be okay?


You’d think by now I’d have figured out
The safest place is in Your arms
It’s when I go where You don’t lead me
That I come to harm

My spirit’s been broken
My body’s been bruised
I’m sorry I settled for this
When You didn’t make me to be messed up and confused

I’m sorry, but I’m human.
I’m sorry I keep making the same mistakes
And I’m sorry if all I’m doing
Is taking advantage of Your grace
I’m sorry that apologies
Are all I’ve got to say
And I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t ask
But could I still be okay?

I wish I could say that I’m done
But I can’t let it go by myself
Open Your arms, pull me in, I wanna come home Lord
But I’m gonna need Your help

The guilt, the shame, the temptation
Just take it away.
I’m sorry I didn’t listen when You said no
But I believe You can still make it okay.

I’m sorry, but I’m human.
I’m sorry I keep making the same mistakes
And I’m sorry if all I’m doing
Is taking advantage of Your grace
I’m sorry that apologies
Are all I’ve got to say
And I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t ask
But please make me okay

You know that thing You told me not to do

I’m sorry
