Wait right here boy
I'll be back with another man's hands in mine
Please quit your crying,
this kind of stuff happens all the time
And if you really wanna know my reasons
get ready to catch your jaw
before it hits the floor

You did the best that you could do
and I'm oh-so-proud of you
Please forgive my bad examples
I just did not know what to do

I never meant to hurt anyone by cheating
I just felt so alone
I'm sick of being in it for the kid
I never meant to hurt anyone by sneaking
around and upside-down
The whole world is crumblin' in my hands
Oh, please don't tell dad

It's not the end of the world
Statistics show that I'm just another case
Please don't tell anyone
Unfaithful, I broke under the pressure,
but at the moment it just felt right
Now I don't know how I'm gonna go home tonight

You did the best that you could do
and I'm oh-so-proud of you
Please forgive my bad examples
I just did not know what to do

I never meant to hurt anyone by cheating
I just felt so alone
I'm sick of being in it for this kid
I never meant to hurt anyone by sneaking
around and upside-down
The whole world is crumblin' in my hands
Oh, please don't tell dad

I felt like I was invincible,
but it turns out I'm not
I am only human and I'll always be
Now could you please forgive me
right now?

    General Comment^ actually, it definitely is.
    You can find it on One Fell Swoop i nthe extras.

    I love this song. Not many people actually dive into adults cheating in their lyrics. But, that's another reason that I adore Nick.
    It's just written with such a perspective that it's amazing to hear. New perspectives are always awesome.

    General Commenti like the final version, especially the end
    but i like the demo more, it seemed to have more pain in his voice in the demo

    General CommentI think this songs pretty straight forward. The woman goes through a divorice where she has a kid. The kid has to see her mom night after night come home with a different man. She sorry for what she did and all the relationships she hurt while doing it.
