I watch you from the front porch step
Your car leaves me in a cloud of dust
You said you'll never be back
You drive off with what's left of us

I take my time going through your stuff
I try to savor all the memories
But I know they won't ever be enough
To get you to come back to me

I'm sorry for the words I didn't mean to say
I'm sorry for what I did to make you go away
All I want now is just one more day
So that I can say "I'm sorry"

Years go by without a mention of you
Yet you are always on my mind
I'm still healing from what we went through
I wish I knew how to change time

I would go back and run you down
I would confess everything
I would hope that by the time you hit town
You're on your way back to me

I'm sorry for the words I didn't mean to say
I'm sorry for what I did to make you go away
All I want now is just one more day
So that I can say "I'm sorry"

I woke up this morning to a letter from you
I hesitated but opened it anyway
Your handwriting is a beautiful view
And my heart stops when you say

I'm sorry for the words I didn't mean to say
I'm sorry for what I did to make you go away
All I want now is just one more day
So that I can say "I'm sorry"
