I hope you know, I swear, I've never done this before,
And I care, I'm so sorry, scarred you for life.
Please come back to me, down on my knees,
Repeating apologies.

[Chorus]:
Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder?
Too quick to criticize the lullaby.
Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder?
Too quick to criticize.

Sweet serenity,
(I wish you sweet serenity!)
Sweet serenity,
(Sweet serenity!)

Back on the mistakes I've made,
Please come home to me, I'll show you truth,
I'm all for you, I'll hold your hand.
Ease your mind, yeah, we'll be okay.
Repeating apologies.

Why do I deny...

Stay here with me, let what I am,
Let it speak more, more than words.
They can't compete with,
It's always been you and me.

[Chorus]:
Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder?
Too quick to criticize the lullaby.
Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder?
Too quick to criticize.

Sweet serenity, (I wish you sweet serenity!)
Sweet serenity, (Sweet serenity!)

I hope you know, I hope you know,
I've never done this before, done this before,
And I, I hope you know, I hope you know,
Baby you're not alone, you're not alone.
(You've ruined me!)

I hope you know, I swear I've never done this before.
And I care, I bet you're sorry you've lied to my face,
All these words that I say are the things
I wanted to hear from you to me.

    The pain of being hurt, cheated on by the one you love, and wishing they would comfort you and tell you everything is going to be okay, that they are sorry and still love you and never want to hurt you again... All these words that i say are the things i wanted to hear from you to me... I've been there, wanting the girl who broke me to come crawling back, and say all the right things..
