Written by Boyz II Men, and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis

I know this was my fault but
How much should it cost
To make things right
Do I have to pay for life
We all fall short sometimes
And I'm guilty of that crime
But I just wanna make you see
That you can still believe in me


Chorus:
I know I make mistakes
I am what I am
I'm only a man
So don't take my joy away
Don't turn your back on me


Speak to me let me know how you feel
If you feel like you can hold on and be strong
I will never leave you lonely
I cry sometimes 'cause I make you cry
And that ain't right
I won't make the same mistake twice
Baby please forgive me


Bridge:
No I can't erase the wrong I've done
But I hope you can give me another chance
'Cause if you were me you would want the same
And I'd give that chance to you
