I Made a Mistake


I'm tired of wakin' up
To this same story.
Life's h*ll, I hate
But there's no glory.

What would I give
If you really believed I was sorry?

And I can hardly believe my fate,
But it's slapping me in the face.
There's just nothing I wouldn't give...
But what's done is done.

That's the way that it is.
Now I'm asking you for this:
A second chance, just to prove I'm different.
