I leaned in

It’s not like I meant for this
It’s not like I planned for this
And it’s not like I love him

It’s just how things work out

It didn’t start with a kiss
And it won’t end like this
He was just there
Sitting there
I leaned in
It wasn’t right
But I figured what the ----?
It’s just one night

Chorus:
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you’ll forgive me
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you know
I didn’t cheat
He had me first
I didn’t lie
I just didn’t tell you

Now I’m sorry
And I just don’t know what to do

How about telling him the truth?

It didn’t start with a kiss
I went over to his house
Just to see, just to see
I didn’t want you to worry
So I didn’t say a thing
I planned to
Just use him
That was all
But then I looked at him and wandered was that all?
So I just leaned in, I just leaned in
Oh, I just leaned in

Chorus:
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you’ll forgive me
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you know
I didn’t cheat
He had me first
I didn’t lie
I just didn’t tell you

Now I’m sorry
And I hope you’ll forgive me
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you know
I didn’t cheat
He had me first
I didn’t lie
I just didn’t tell you

Bridge:
I thought I could have my cake and eat it
I thought I could have you and him
I thought I could have everything

Now I’m sorry
And I hope you’ll forgive me
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you know
I did cheat and I did lie
Lied to you since day one
I may be innocent
But I’m guilty too
I made you think I wouldn’t be one of them
Instead I joined them on that list

Chorus:
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you’ll forgive me
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you know
I didn’t cheat
He had me first
I didn’t lie
I just didn’t tell you

Now I’m sorry
And I hope you’ll forgive me
Now I’m sorry
And I hope you know
I didn’t cheat
He had me first
I didn’t lie
I just didn’t tell you

It didn’t start with a kiss

This is extrememly redundant; the chorus is the core of a song not all of the lyrics repeated.

Umm, the part where its like "it didnt start with a kiss, it wont end up like this" is the exact oppasit of Mr.brightside by the killers.. in that song it say "it started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this"  

otherwise it was great!

Um wow. i'm really sorry but this is kinda confusing i mean the whole way through the poem all i could think is you cheated and you say you did'nt and then you say you did weird! but you do write well through.

I agree. You should give it a second chance. I play the six-string guitar and boy it sure is fun.

It's too bad there isn't a way to post the music to song lyrics. I like the choice of words and the music that it made me think of while reading. Keep up the good work.
