Frans: If I Were Sorry Lyrics:
I’d crawl thru the desert on my hands and knees
Rehearsin my pretty please
Climb the highest mountain
If I were sorry
Shout it from the top
Swim under water until my lungs exploded
Walk into the fire
If I were sorry
I’d run a thousand mile
Wouldn’t stop until I dropped
Wouldn’t take a break to breathe until I got close
enough
Then Id do it all again
If I really had the chance
But I know deep inside for you its just another
dance
If I were sorry
I’d give you all the glory
If I were sorry. If I were sorry
It would be a different story
If I were sorry. If I were sorry oh
I’d hold my breath until my face turned blue
I’d rob a bank and the post office too
Swim across the ocean
If I were sorry
I’d take wow of silence
I wouldn’t say a single word
Until you really heard
If I were sorry
I’d run a thousand miles
Wouldn’t stop until I dropped
Wouldn’t take the break to breathe
Until I I got close enough
If I were sorry
I’d give you all the glory
If I were sorry
If I were sorry
It would be a different story
If I were sorry oh
Now did you ever realize
That your mistake had a prize
Oh you threw it all away
Cuz youre the devil in disguise
Now would you ever realize
The consequences of your lies
And would you save the falling tear or act as if
There’s nothing there
If I were sorry. If I were sorry.
If I were sorry. If I were sorry.
If I were sorry.
I’d take a vow of silence
I wouldn’t say a single word
If I were sorry. If I were sorry
I’d be on my hands and knees
Beggin pretty please
If I were sorry. But I’m not so rry no.
