I owe you an apology
And if I begged, would you accept?
I’m sorry,
Said I’m sorry –
That happiness seems so hard for me
So out of reach…

Yet even so,
I’m happy now,
Yeah, that’s a smile,
Not a frown,
So help me understand what’s wrong with me…
Something’s so wrong with me…

Why do I do this,
Hate life,
Like this?
I know you love me,
I know it
I know it
I think I know…

So I’m sorry,
Sorry that I get so lost,
So confused and unaffected
By your tears and your emotions
But I’m okay now,
I’m doing better,
Things are better,
I swear they’re better…

I know you love me.
I know it.
It’s the truth, and I believe
So why is it so hard to see…
Like the Devil’s got a hold on me…
So why is it so hard to see…
That life is love, and death is not free.
