lyrics

Nothing makes me shiver with regret like when I think
Of all the friends I’ve had and how I’ve made all their hearts sink
By doing something stupid that could bring things to an end
I’m sorry for being a bad friend

So if I punched you in a rage, did not defend you when attacked
Dropped you for another friend at the drop of a hat
I made you the joke so I was not the one laughed at
I’m sorry for being a bad friend

I always wanted to control you, did not allow you to be free
Undermined your sweet uniqueness, thought that you should be like me
Criticised you for your weaknesses, denied you any grace
I called you the c-word directly to your face
I’m sorry for being a bad friend

A good friend would not have hurt you
A good friend would not have let you down
The way I’ve done

I didn’t send you any invites to the parties that I held
Told all the world the secrets that I’d sworn I wouldn’t tell
Got drunk out of loneliness and scared you with my need
To have someone to hold and who would want to hold me
I’m sorry for being a bad friend

So I believe in God’s forgetfulness but maybe not in yours
If I’ve hurt you then I’m sorry, I hope she can heal the bruise
Her failing memory is a mercy that none of us deserve
Her forgiveness is the road from which now on I will not swerve
I’m sorry for being a bad friend
