Anita Baker - I Apologize

Operator
Get my baby on the line
Just the other night
We had a horrible fight
I admit that I
I was out of control
But I still love my man
With my body and soul
When the road gets rough
You say things you should not say
I never meant
To treat my baby that way
I apologize
Oh, believe me I do
I apologize
Honest and true
Because I know I was wrong
So I sing you this song
And I'm tryin' to get through
To make it up to you, yeah
Operator
It was like a bad dream
Lord, you should have heard
The way he shouted and the way that I screamed
I regret it cause I was unfair
I took it all out on him
Just because he was there
When the road gets rough
You say things you should not say
I never meant to treat my daddy that way
I apologize
Oh, believe me I do
I apologize
Honest and true
Because I know I was wrong
So I sing you this song
And I'm tryin' to get through
To make it up to you, yeah
I apologize
'Cause I was unkind
And I wish that I could go back in time
Erase our goodbyes
It's eating at my heart
But come rain or come shine
I'm gonna do it right this time
I apologize
