When I look back at the years

And see how I treated you

I’m so ashamed

Too ashamed to trace

The disappointment on your face

That I allowed you to take the blame

That I allowed you to take the heat

Whilst I looked down at my feet

I’m too ashamed to trace

The disappointment on your face

I’ve learnt my lesson now

I won’t let you take the blame

I’ll move your lips

To deflect the heat

I’ll move your eyes

From your feet to the skies

I’ll  Inhabit that part

Of your injured heart

I never again want to trace

The disappointment on your face

I’ve learnt my lesson now

I’m holding your head high

Never again to accept blame

Never again to accept defeat

Never again to trace

That disappointment on your face
