​Apologize

This song is by Bill Anderson and appears on the album My Life/But You Know I Love You (1969) and on the album Just Plain Bill (1972).

In the fury of the moment
When the words of rath rang out
When my mind was filled with questions
And my head was filled with doubt

I can still see all the sadness
And the sorrow in your eyes
How can flowers live in darkness
How can I apologize?

For the blackness I've created
In the world that used to shine
I've wilted all the roses
And I've spoiled all the wine.

Get out your magic pencil
And erase the cloudy skies
Draw a picture of me
Saying I apologize.

Give me back the words
I spoke in haste
Give 'em back or love will go to waste
Give 'em back.

See the sunlight reappearing
Through the shrouds of darkened gloom
As I hear your words forgiving me
And watch the flowers bloom.

Have your arms refused to open
Have you served all your ties
I'd still be on my knees
Saying I apologize.

Give me back the words
I spoke in haste
Give 'em back or love will go to waste
Give 'em back...
