Shawn Colvin - I'll Say I'm Sorry Now Lyrics




I'm gonna let you down
I know that now
Make you cry, I know I will
Why should you believe
I would never leave
Or that I love you still

For all that I am by
And hard as we try
The bough breaks
The cradle falls

For everything I do
That will tear at you
Let me say I'm sorry now

So you can sing your song
You can get it wrong
You can kiss the rock of ages
In your wildest dreams
You might see between
The liars and the sages

You can walk awhile
Down the mystery mile
You can beat the drums of freedom
In love and war
Through the rush and roar
You just call 'em like you see 'em

Shawn Colvin I'll Say I'm Sorry Now Comments
  1. George.W. Bush

    I had been humming a part of this song for like 10 years(.Third watch Bosco scene.)I've just found it today never thought i'd know exactly the title of it.almost cried when I realized that's the one.
    Made my day and also brought tears in my eyes.

  2. Eeek !

    Does anyone know an instrumental version of this song?

  3. 冠承劉

    This will be on my funeral songs list.

  4. jeff hiponia

    im sorry my love but i cant say it

  5. TheyCall MeMoe

    I remember hearing this on Army Wives. great show... great song

  6. Catherine S. Todd

    Tears of sorrow. And somehow healing, washing away all my fears. Love lets go and says goodbye, no matter how much it hurts. We just wave them gone and let them go and move on, no matter what the cost, abandoned or lost. All the promises and all the lies... let them go like fire and ash. The angels sing and God will save us all. Thank you for the reminder, Shawn. Keeps me going one more day...

  7. Shelley Shan

    I'm gonna let you down
    I know that now
    Make you cry, I know I will
    Why should you believe
    I would never leave
    Or that I love you still

    For all that I am by
    And hard as we try
    The bough breaks
    The cradle falls

    For everything I do
    That will tear at you
    Let me say I'm sorry now

    So you can sing your song
    You can get it wrong
    You can kiss the rock of ages
    In your wildest dreams
    You might see between
    The liars and the sages

    You can walk awhile
    Down the mystery mile
    You can beat the drums of freedom
    In love and war
    Through the rush and roar
    You just call 'em like you see 'em

    For all the by and by
    And hard as we try
    The bough breaks

  14. Becky Essig

    I saw that episode of Judging Amy, years ago, and was reminded today of it. That scene and this song makes more sense to me now that my sons are older and I live so far away from my mom.
