Apology
© 2007 Holly Leer/HollyHawk Music BMI

I never really knew you, but I kissed you.
I never thought about you, and then I missed you.
All you asked for was a letter that I didn’t send.
Now I wish I could have been a better friend.

I’m sorry for the kind word that I never gave.
I held on to the smile that maybe could have saved your life.
We never truly know just how our actions and our words,
Ripple through the ones who we refuse to see.
To you, and you, and you…this is my apology.

We were both so young, we’d just begun to live.
I didn’t realize then all that I had to give.
And it really wouldn’t have taken much
For me just to keep in touch with you.

I’m sorry for the kind word that I never gave.
I held on to the smile that maybe could have saved your life.
We never truly know just how our actions and our words,
ripple through the ones who we refuse to see.
To you, and you, and you…

How many times have I just turned and walked away?
If only I could do it all again.
Make all my wrongs to rights, and never waste another day
looking through the person with an open hand.

I heard about your story just the other day.
Happy ever after didn’t come your way.
Could just a little kindness been enough
to guide you through the blindness of your despair?

I’m sorry for the kind word that I never gave.
I held on to the smile that maybe could have saved your life.
We never truly know just how our actions and our words,
ripple through the ones who we refuse to see.
To you, and you, and you…this is my apology.

All you asked for was a letter that I didn’t send.
