I APOLOGIZE (Robert J. Purvis)

I, I must apologize to you

You know I really hate to do this thing

Really hate, I said I really hate, you know


I, I must apologize to you

You know I really hate to do this thing

Really hate, I really hate to do this thing to you


I know you have your share of sad goodbyes

And if I thought it would work, girl

You know I would try

You probably hate me, I don't blame you anymore

The door was open and I felt the urge to go

But now I realize just how lonely lies can be


You, you thought you had me on a string

I couldn't do a single thing that was right

Oh, how I tried


I, I never really wanted to go

But I couldn't take anymore

You know, I had to leave you woman


I feel so sorry for you now I'm gone

I'd rather tell you how, how I'm getting on

But don't go building castles in the sky

I mean, I'm gone for good

You know I said goodbye

That's all I have to say

This is the way it has to be

I feel so sorry for you now I'm gone

I'd rather tell you how, how I'm getting on

But don't go building castles in the sky

I mean, I'm gone for good

You know I said goodbye

That's all I have to say

This is the way it has to be


That's all I have to say

This is the way it has to be


That's all I have to say

This is the way it has to be.
