My eyesight fails with the receding light,
Night falls and I tremble in the aftermath.
You always say you’re sorry,
(You’re only sorry you’ve been caught.)
Restless, I sleep awake, the new day dawns,
Sun breaks the horizon and I see black.
I always say I’m sorry,
(I’m only sorry you’ve been caught.)
We speak of how we’re sorry,
(We’re only sorry that we’re not.)
