Neil Young – Running Dry lyrics

Oh, please help me oh please help me
I'm livin' by myself
I need someone to comfort me
I need someone to tell

I'm sorry for the things I've done
I've shamed myself with lies
But soon these things are overcome
And can't be recognized

I left my love with ribbons on
And water in her eyes
I took from her the love I'd won
And turned it to the sky

I'm sorry for the things I've done
I've shamed myself with lies
My cruelty has punctured me
And now I'm running dry

I'm sorry for the things I've done
I've shamed myself with lies
But soon these things are overcome
And can't be recognized

I'm sorry for the things I've done
I've shamed myself with lies
But soon these things are overcome
And can't be recognized

    I think running dry is about a strong feeling of guiltiness for having hurt a person who had given neil love, but whom he paid back only with lies. He's beautifully describing the state of mind of a sensitive person, when s/he realizes the evil s/he has done, and feels down for having done it? I wish that those who hurt me wre able to feel like this.
