I'm sorry for the times that I made you scream
For the times that I killed your dreams
For the times that I made your whole world rumble

For the times that I made you cry
For the times that I told you lies
For the times that I watched and let you stumble

It's too bad, but that's me
What goes around comes around, and you'll see
That I can carry the burden of pain
'cause it ain't the first time that a man goes insane
And when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I'm sucking out his love, 'cause I, I'll never be nobody's wife

I'm sorry for the times that I didn't come home
Left you lyin' in that bed alone
Was flying' high in the sky when you needed my shoulder

You're like a stone hanging around my neck, see
Cut it loose before it breaks my back, see
I've gotta say what I feel before I grow older

I'm sorry but I ain't gonna change my ways
You know I've tried but I'm still the same
I've got to do it my way

[repeat chorus]


[repeat chorus]

    General CommentAnouk's not a bitch, atleast thats not what this song intends to say. Shes a strong woman who loves her man, but loves her freedom more.
    she knows that if shell give her freedom up, give herself up, she'll be "sucking out his love",
    cause love survives only when its free.
    Atleast thats the way I see it...

    General CommentI've just come up with reggae version and I'm amazed how powerful and true the song is. Absolutely the best Anouk song.

    General CommentI think this song is not only about her being strong and wanting her freedom but also her being afraid to be committed cuz in past relationships the guys she has dated have been bad guys so she no longer trusts them. "What goes around comes around, and you'll see that I can carry the burden of pain 'cause it ain't the first time that a man goes insane"

    Also, she wants to be with a guy but doesn't want to get too close cuz she thinks he's just going to end up hurting her like the other guys have in the past.

    General CommentI'll never be nobody's wife is a double negative and means she will be somebody's wife.
