It's been twenty years
Since I rose and cleared my throat
It's been ten years
Since I stood outside the church
It's been nine years
Since the ground became the sky
It's been eight years
Since I found an alibi
It's been six years
Since the dogs picked up game
It's been four years
Since I learned to love the pain
It's been one year
Since I stole life from the grave
And over all these years
Just three things I've tried to say

[Chorus:]
I was wrong
I'm sorry
And I love you
I was wrong
I'm sorry
And I love you
I was wrong
I'm sorry
And I love you
I love you

I welcome everyone
But give them nothing when they arrive
Or else build a house
With no way to come inside
I've learned to hide my tears
Learned to hold them deep inside
And then sell my fears
Just to pick your pockets dry

[Repeat Chorus:]

I have misled you
I have misread you
I've cared too much
And not enough
In the same breath
You've been my hope
My stretch of rope
In life and death

[Repeat Chorus:]

I love you (3x)
