How heavy do I journey on the way?
When all I want is to come back to you?
Ask your forgiveness and lots to convey
Being away and all my days were blue
I’ve gone astray and took more than I chew
Now hoping it’s not too late to restart
I’d do anything so you don’t adieu
I really didn’t mean to break your heart
I atone for all the things we’ve gone through
Now I know I couldn’t live without you**
