I know I made you promises
I said a lot of things
I told you that I love you
To a swelling of strings
Don't blame you if you're angry
Or feeling shortchanged
I know you let your guard down
And nothing was exchanged

I hope that you don't hate me
Even though I know you must
I got a problem with commitment
Less sensible than cussed
I say a lot of stupid things
In the name of honesty
But they wind up being hurting
And I become your enemy

If I, if I could only take it all back
If I, if I could only take it all back
Don't you know that I would
I would do what I could
I would give you my word
I would give you my word
Just give me one more chance

I'm a wicked storyteller
I make every word count
I make you a believer
With my sermons on the mount
But I sense you're getting leery
Of all my tall tales
Think of me as your handyman
I've made you tough as nails
