"I Have Loved You Wrong" as written by and Marketa Irglova....
Forgive me, lover, for I have sinned
For I have done you wrong.
For I have hurt beyond repair,
And when tears occurred no I didn't care.
Forgive me, lover, for I have sinned
For I have loved you wrong.

But this estranged organ in my chest
Still beats for you
It will not rest, so
Meet me in our secret place
When the time has come

And rest your head in my lap and I'll
Beat you out of your own trap and I'll
Show you how much you have missed truth in
Time we were in right

Ah
Ah

So forgive me, lover, for I have sinned
For I have let you go.

But you've been
Every now and then on my mind,
You're every now and then on my mind
You're every now and then on my mind
You're every now and then on my mind
You're every now and then on my mind
You're every now and then on my mind
You're every now and then on my mind
You're every now and then on my mind

You're on my mind,
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind

On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
On my mind

    General CommentThis song is about being in a failing relationship then reaching a point whereby you accept everything that's wrong and turn that realisation into a good thing.

    It is, very basically, about not showing or telling someone that you love them enough, realising it, and asking for forgiveness.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and honest. Letting someone go is a terribly hard thing to do, and Marketa reveals that in a very truthful and tender way. Amazing.

    My InterpretationSometimes we take people for granted. We let routine and just..life I guess, get the best of us and forget just how important and special some people are in our lives. So we eventually let these people go, maybe too easily, and don't realize how much our actions hurt them and how much they might make it seem like you didn't care even though you did.

    I think this song is realizing all of this and, after it's over, realizing you have wronged this person, that it's over, it didn't work out, but you still really care about them, and in some way you still love them.

    But maybe that's putting my own experiences into it, I dunno.
