Will you listen to my story
It’ll just be a minute
How can I explain
Whatever happened here never meant to hurt you
How can I cause you so much pain
When I say I’m sorry
Will you believe me
Listen to my story
Say you won’t leave me
When I say I’m sorry
Can you forgive me
When I say I will always be there
Will you believe, will you believe in me
All the words that I come up with
They’re like gasoline on flames
There’s no excuse, no explanation
Believe me if I could undo what I did wrong
I’d give away all that I own
When I say I’m sorry
Will you believe me
Listen to my story
Say you won’t leave me
When I say I’m sorry
Can you forgive me
When I say I will always be there
Will you believe
If I told you I’ve been cleanin’ my soul
And If I promise you I’ll regain control
Will you open your door
And let me in take me for who I am
And not for who I’ve been, who I’ve been
When I say I’m sorry
Will you believe me
Listen to my story
Say you won’t leave me
When I say I’m sorry
Can your forgive me
When I say I will always be there
Will you believe me
When I say I’m sorry
When I say I’m sorry
When I say I’m sorry
When I say I’m sorry
When I say I’m sorry
Can you forgive me
When I say I will always be there
Will you believe

    General CommentWow this is an amazing song!!!
    It seems pretty self explanitory.
    He has betrayed a friend or partner and has hurt them .... a lot, he wants them to listen to his story because maybe they will understand why he betrayed them, he never meant to hurt them and he wants the person to forgive him and take him back..... he thinks he has changed...can be trusted and always be there for the person.......hes really sorry, and wants the person to believe that
