Sorry I Cheated


I know I hurt you
When I did what I did.
But still without you
I don't think I can live.

You're the only one
That I have ever loved.
You were my shoulder to lean on
When things got rough.

I know it was stupid
And a huge mistake.
Will you please forgive me?
I'll do whatever it takes.

I cried myself to sleep at night
Knowing that I shouldn't.
I should have moved on
But, well, I just couldn't.

But when I cheated
Was when I realized
Just how much you meant to me
And still now and then
The tears stream from my eyes.

It's been a couple of months
And I still can't move on.
I just don't want to think
That we are really done.

I was so scared to tell you
I thought that I would lose you.
I highly doubted it
But it came true.

I thought that we could work things out
And build our trust back up.
But I think I really lost you
And to even think that is really tough.

I compare other guys to you
But none comes even close.
All they want to do is
Hit it, quit it, then boast.

You really were different
And that's what I liked.
You held me close
On cold, summer nights.

Even as I write this
Tears fall from my eyes.
I can't believe I did that to you
Then turned around and lied.

You were the most precious
Person in my life.
And maybe if I never did that
We'd still be doing alright.
