Roxette – I'm Sorry lyrics

The first time we met time stood still
You left me breathless
Suddenly speechless.

Within the hour we were one
Two total strangers kissing the moonlight.

Oh, you know I'm sorry I had to go
I'm really sorry it had to die
I'm really sorry I made you cry

We fell in love between the nights
Of too many lovers and too many teardrops.

And fate won't resist some satin sheets
I was so helpless
Totally ruthless.

Oh, you know I'm sorry I had to go
I'm really sorry you're hurt inside
I'm really sorry I made you cry
Cry, cry.

Love is lifting you up and draggin' you down
Makes you go round and round and round
Time makes a stop then it's all gone
Funny how memories keep lingering on.
