"Edward The Confessor" as written by and Neil Hannon....
I?m so sorry,
Please forgive me

For knowing that I?m wrong but insisting I?m right,
For wanting everything to be either black or white,
For wallowing in self pity, confessing all my sins,
For studying my thoughts until my head caves in

For all the things I?ve said but regret so much now,
For all the things I should have said but I couldn?t somehow,
For all the times I?ve met them, and I?ve known them for so long,
But I still get their names wrong

I?m so sorry,
Please forgive me

For trying to be all things to all men,
For shelving my objectives time and time again,
For looking for perfection in everything I do
When really I need only look as far as you

For demanding to be loved by someone new each year
And dispatching them quietly over a pint of beer,
Well yeah, I did it without malice and I did it without shame
But I did it just the same

And I?m so sorry,
Please forgive me

For coming home from work in the middle of the night,
For waking you up with the bathroom light,
For wanting to touch you with these cold, cold hands,
For wanting to have you just because I can

For always running from an argument when I ought to stand and fight,
For suppressing my emotions ?cause I?m too goddamned polite,
And then for thinking that by simply saying sorry
I could suddenly make everything alright

I?m so sorry,
Please forgive me

I?m so sorry,
Please forgive me

    General CommentListened to this for the first time ever today, and all I can say is wow.

    I was just broken up with today, and these are all the things I'm sorry for.

    Fantastic DC track.
