Last night, everything was movin' so fast
I could barely keep track
Of my offenses or your defenses

In hindsight, I woulda, coulda, shoulda not gone there
But left without a word to spare
Was it your offenses or my defensiveness?

That's got me thinkin' that we're never gonna get it right
I wanna straighten this before the sun goes down tonight
If I could only fight the bitterness I feel inside
This thing is eatin' me alive

Well, I'm right here and you're right there
And God knows we've got to start somewhere
'Cause I'm messed up and you're broken
And those shots we fired are still smokin'

I'm tossin' and turnin' on the things I'd undo
As I wrestle with the painful truth
My sleep escapes me as guilt berates me

Exhausted, the memories are drawing so near
I can see it like a world premiere
When did my objective lose all objectiveness?

If I need you and you need me
How can you turn your back and just leave me?
When I'm right here and you're right there
And God knows we've got to start somewhere

I said some things that I regret
And if I could, I'd take 'em back
If I could turn my words around
You wouldn't hear a sound

But here I am and there you are
The space between us is not so far
I'm reaching out my hand in love before the fading sun
Forgive me for what I've done
