I could have called and told you where I was
I could have held you, but I didn’t because
I was scared of what the future might bring
I guess I could have done a lot of things

Your love means more to me
Than I ever can explain
Then why do I cause you so much pain

I acted thoughtlessly
I never thought of how you’d feel
I never kept my end of the deal
I acted thoughtlessly
Give me one more chance for you and me
And I’ll never act again
So thoughtlessly

I love you with all my heart, what else can I do
Don’t let us break apart – how could I do this to you?
But lessons of love are painfully learned
Now let’s build the bridges I have burned

Chorus, Instrumental, Chorus
