My Apology


Karma usually comes wearing a stranger's light
it's easier to deal with that way
but now it's you
I've hurt you, disrespected you
it's nowhere to hide, no turning back
no rearrangement, only what lies ahead,
and you're so heaven sent

I know you're feeling hurt
because of what I did to you
if it's blame I'll take it
baby, we will make it thru
cuz I love you (I love you)
I love you (think about it baby)

I'm sorry for giving you the cold shoulder
(never been this wrong before, never stood my ground and breathed it in before)
Lord, all I wanted to do is hold ya
(never felt so brave and so afraid before, never faced alone and felt a peace before)
With tears in my eyes I come to you sincerely
(accepting this space I'm in, growing outta the phase where I just wanna win)
You act as though you don't even hear me
(look at me, baby, look at me)

[Repeat chorus]

[Spoken by Natalie:]
I released my grief
it was a heavy load
survived this sleep
and now I'm letting go
waking up and living up
to what I had proposed
a woman now,
I loved the girl I used to be
every step she took
was reaching out to me
every breath is blessed,
I made it baby

I can't control your feelings
I can't take back what I've done
(with my hand on my heart)
I'm coming to you sincerely
if ya hear me (I know you)

[repeat chorus twice]

Baby I'm sorry...

think about it
we know better
but um, love has no expectations
that's why I don't expect you
to do anything
think about it
this is for me
and I'm offering this to you
to free myself
cuz I know what I have to do
this is my apology
think about it
think about it, babe
