When your time on the mountain is over
And you fall to the earth like a leaf
It won't be enough these days to say sorry
No, sorry won't pay for this grief

For you may lay down your guilt on the altar
You may nail your remorse to a cross
But it's not enough these days to say sorry
No, sorry won't pay for this loss

And if the blood on your hands turns to water
And the night in your soul turns to day
It won't be enough this time to say sorry
No, sorry won't wash it all away

You may lay down your guilt on the altar.

When you're through with the spells you've been spinning
When our hopes and our dreams have all died
It won't be enough these days to say sorry
No, sorry won't turn back the tide

You may lay down your guilt on the altar.

And if you should desist from deceiving
And if you should confess to the crime
It won't be enough these days to say sorry
No, sorry won't save you this time

You may lay down your guilt on the altar.
