I’ve Been Doing This Thing For a Long Time

I’ve Been Doing This Thing For a Long Time

Love, you know I’m sorry for the things that I said
You know I say whatever comes to my head
I don’t have excuses, but I have a lot of regrets.

Love, I’m an idiot, and you know this from experience
And so I’ll quit talking for the rest of my existence
And it’s not going well
But hell, I’m trying.

And I’m wondering if you’ll forgive me
And I’m wondering if you still care about me

And I’m waiting on you for a sign
That everything’s gonna be alright
That you’ll take me back in your arms
But I’ve been doing this thing for a long time:
Staring at the place where the road parts,
Looking at the one-way-only sign
Hoping I’ll find a way to your heart

Love, I’m so sorry for the way that I was
I go and break your heart and I say it’s because I’m scared of how this would be without you.
But love, now I’m living it
And I wish I wasn’t in it
And I hope there will be a time where I can say that I undid it
Because I’m scared

And I’m wondering if you’ll forgive me
And I’m wondering if you still think about me

And I’m waiting on you for a sign
That everything’s gonna be just fine
That you’ll take me back in your arms
But I’ve been doing this thing for a long time:
Staring at the place where the road parts,
Looking at the one-way-only sign
Hoping I’ll find a way to your heart

I’ve been doing this thing for a long time:
Staring at the place where the road parts,
Looking at the one-way-only sign
Hoping I’ll find a way to your heart
I’ve been doing these things hoping I’m coming out clean
Now I’m down on my knees asking you to please forgive me
Please forgive me in time
