Old Dominion - Some People Do Lyrics




I know you're hurt, I know it's my fault
But I've kept "I'm sorry" locked in a vault
I know that time just keeps going on
And words by themselves can't right all the wrongs

In a world that's gone crazy
You don't know what's true
Most people don't change
But some people do

Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it's never good timing
Most wouldn't forgive
What I put you through
But I'm here tonight
Hoping some people do

Some people say "sorry" to hear "it's okay"
But I know it's not, so you don't have to say
That you understand 'cause I know you don't
Neither do I, but that don't mean that I won't

Try every day
To show you the truth
Most people don't change
But some people do

Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it's never good timing
Most wouldn't forgive
What I put you through
But I'm here tonight
Hoping some people do

So whether you kiss me
Or you close the door
Just know that I'm better
Than I was before

Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it's never good timing
Most wouldn't forgive
What I put you through
But I'm here tonight
Hoping some people do

I'm hoping some people do

    Lisa McMullin

    @NICHOLAS SPROW Are you kidding? Why would I be jealous? I am not a musician. I just know good music when I hear it. Certainly not any of this crap. I only put this awful song on to comment how awful it really is.

  31. irene Meier

    what a great heartfelt song

  32. quickmaz

    This is something that I want to hear from my ex. I've made mistakes also, but what was done, it wasn't my doing. I'm not perfect no way at all, and I'm not the victim. This past April, the divorce finalized. After 23 years of marriage, I would think that she'll talk to me, because of the history we had together, but she won't, and I don't think she ever will, and I'm ok with that. I forgave her. Time to move on with my life. Wish things were different between us, like friends, but I guess that's not going to happen anytime soon. God bless everyone.

  33. Eclipse

    Song made me cry. Powerful.

  40. GoldenEra 4ever

    This song has nothing to do with my personal life at the moment, but I love it. Sometimes a song comes out by someone and you feel like their voice is the ONLY one for that song. That's how I feel about Matthew on this one.

  41. Stephen Boyington

    Most people ain't got herpes.

  56. Logan Graves

    I know you're hurt, I know it's my fault
    But I've kept "I'm sorry" locked in a vault
    I know that time just keeps going on
    And words by themselves can't right all the wrongs
    In a world that's gone crazy, you don't know what's true
    Most people don't change, but some people do
    Some people quit drinking too much
    And some people quit lying
    Some people decide to grow up
    But it's never good timing
    Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
    But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do
    Some people say sorry to hear it's okay
    But I know it's not so you don't have to say
    That you understand 'cause I know you don't
    And neither do I, that don't mean that I won't
    Try everyday to show you the truth
    Most people don't change, but some people do
    Some people quit drinking too much
    And some people quit lying
    Some people decide to grow up
    But it's never good timing
    Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
    But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do
    So whether you kiss me or you close the door
    Just know that I'm better than I was before
    Some people quit drinking too much
    And some people quit lying
    Some people decide to grow up
    But it's never good timing
    Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
    But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do
    I'm hoping some people do

  57. Tim Boone

    Was driving on I-75 through south Florida last week through the Everglades and this came on. There was the most beautiful sunset facing me. I broke, and while those 3 mins were painful, it was worth me remembering that in the midst of my pain there is hope in such a broken world.

  58. Danny Koo

    This is a relatable song.... This recently became one of my fav songs that will be added to my list of songs and artists that I listen to often

  59. Gottisanidiot

    Ah, the strings and piano are so beautiful in this song. Can't wait to see these fellow Virginians in Charlotte.

  60. J.R. Lobinsky

    I love this song, very beautiful song to listen to and I think it’s one of my favorite songs by Old Dominion!

  61. Melissa Kidd

    This could have been written about us... 😔

  62. Amy Gordon

    This is for the narcissist I've known for 20 years that always put me down and abused me. I finally said never again!! Haven't spoken to him since.

  63. Justine Relano

    Wow, same thoughts. So deep that I can relate♥️

  64. William Herring

    This song is making me think of someone, and we’ve been good as friends after a break up
    For a while

  65. The Alaskan Husky

    It’s only recently I realize how big of a A-Hole I was to my friends. Luckily they didn’t drop me but the thing that bothers me still is that I stop doing the things that pisses them off I changed for the better but they aren’t doing the same thing that made me act that way and I told them that. I did it for 1/2 a year because I was under a lot of stress. Most of them do it for amusement and I already asked them to stop but they don’t. I’m just confused but I have faith in them.

    Adi Pinnt

    I'm sorry. If you don't mind, would you elaborate on that?

  66. Zorinpuii Selate

    Its been many years.
    I still miss you.
    N i forgive you, hope you live a happily with your Queen.
    I admit! U r the best thing that happened to me.

  67. Donna Benson

    Some people never do ! Hurt others by words

  68. Ultraviolet Thunderpussy

    Wow! Powerful song!

  69. saku654

  70. James Sullivan

  71. lady brown

  72. Marryann Lamb

    Thanks so very much for sharing .

  73. joyce hall

    Still love you!

  74. Ruth Serapelo

    Really connected with this song. Beautiful💕

  75. SUPREME

    Live like everyday is your last, love like it’s your first time every time, forgive and forget because everyone make mistakes. Because when that someone you love, only has today to live it’s too late to love them for the short amount of time that you have left. Most importantly love love love yourself and don’t lose your way, have a wonderful day who ever is reading this.

    But not us...

  78. Calor D

    I am not disappointed at all when I clicked this recommended

  79. Ernest T. Bass

    I had the greatest woman in the world. She has 3 great kids and a great mom. She had been through alot of loss and pain from her ex. I fell head over heels for her and she did me too. She let me in to her life and i let her down. I let her mom and the kids down as well. I was fresh out of a 25 year marriage when i met her. She gave me hope about finding someone to spend the rest of my life with. Its been three years since she told me to never show my face again. Ive thought about her and the kids every day and every night since i left. Ive dated since but nobody is her. She just cant be replaced. Ive rethought so much about how i handled things. Bad advice from professionals, etc. Wow. Was i ever wrong. I'd sell my soul to the devil to be with her and the kids again. Sandy, i'll love you, the kids, and your mom until i take my last breath. My time with you and the kids were the best days of my life. I hope she has found someone who treats her like the Queen she is and finds happiness. She deserves nothing less. This song just nails exactly what im thinking.

    Terry Lo

    go tell her that

    Grant Robertson

    Unless you tell her this, she will continue to think of you as the old you. Show her how you have changed, but don’t just say it, mean my, live by it.

    Amy McIntire

    My ex did this to me. Broke me and my daughter's heart, left us and our 'animal family' too, without a backward glance. You give me hope that at least, some day, he might realize what a foolish thing he did, after six years, when all I asked him to do was spend a little more time with me and less off doing his own thing. Literally, just a little more time.

    Atomic Force3

    Omg baby this is Sandy I forgive you baby give me that dong

  80. Silly Hello

    You’re thinking of someone who has hurt you, left you, or broke you.. and you are wishing they were saying all of this to you

    William Herring

    Silly Hello, I did, but now after her saying rude stuff to me all the time, she’s a Rude Bitch

    the dirk87

    Silly Hello I’m thinking of someone I’d love to say this to. Or two

    Abraham Gaad

    Same here

    Gregg Ethridge

    For me, it's the other way around as well

    Thori Am

    Nah. I’m one of the guys trying to make it up. Just hope the damage can be repaired. Just hopin it’s not too late. Just hopin some people do.

  81. Jiu Jitsu Dragon

    The hardest part is letting go. Its hard changing your life. Love and peace to all going through pain right now. Know that you are never alone, you have value to someone.

    Gottisanidiot

    Beautifully said.

    Christie Dee

    I finally believe this and God's perfect plan will be revealed to me in His time and not mine

  82. Hannah Becker

    This one hits the heart so, so deeply.......

  83. zada nada

    Some people quit drinking too much some people quit lying some people decide to grow up! But quitting isn’t becoming of you so looks like I’ll just quit.... you

  84. The Blessed One

    Answer from heaven

  85. Felicia somes

    Wow this is really deep and I like it

  86. Kate Tsang

    any help from you and many remind me not ask for help, so confuse

  87. Kate Tsang

    I know the truth of the world already for a long time once I know you the first day I have told you that I don't need man and don't need anyone help

  88. Alissa Tee

    Omg this new song is fire!!!

  89. John Eason

    That a great one, good lyrics. I, think everyone has been in both sides of this song's meaning.
    Thanks for the music.

  90. Aly Dan Rob

    In Dec 2017 my man had a warrant because he violated his parole. He was was going through a tough time and ended up stealing a gun and out it in my car without me knowing about it. We were parked on the side of the road near an abandoned building, our spot we always went to and talked to spend time together and the cops came. They knew his face and since he had a warrant they immediately out him in cuffs, he caught a new charge due to the gun and I was arrested as well because we had marijuana that I claimed 😅 he was sent off to prison April 2018 and we've written letters to each other. He's a great guy who has made some mistakes, I knew the struggle he was going through and I've forgiven him. I know he has changed, and he gets out in a couple of months. This song is literally like a letter he wrote to me. He's the reason I have a record and like the song says, most people wouldn't forgive what he did to me. This song also reminds me of one of my favorite childhood songs by Kenny Chesney called Some People Change. I sang that song at my 6th grade talent show. Much love Old Dominion! Keep up the great music!!

    Didn't use to be a fan but they are growing on me

  93. R S

    Oof 😶 I feel like YouTube just punched me in the face

    Wyoming Wyoming

    R S why

    R S

    @Wyoming Wyoming I have someone in my life who has been like this. Lied and drank too much and really just a lot of things...who promised to change and didn't. And then did change, but only temporarily. And now is promising to change again. It's like an emotional rollercoaster, and because I care about this person, I want to believe. This song hit close to home. YouTube suggests things as if it's reading my mind.

  94. Ashlyn Simmons

    This is song is my Life it decribes it.
