lyrics

I am sorry that I said that I am sorry, so, so many times.
You must forgive me as I wander on a path that is a circle, in my mind.
I could tell you that I’m walking on a straight line, as I always planned.
It never matters where I go because I always end up just where I began.

Walking on a straight line:
The saddest soul you’ll ever meet.
Walking on a straight line.
Guess I’ll just repeat.

I have used up all my ink in writing novels of my wrongs and my regrets.
This is helpful to remind me, and to never allow me to forget.
If I let go what would I do with all these hidden heavy bags of shame?
They are my First Place trophies to show you that I can be the winner of this game.

Walking on a straight line;
Sparked a flame so blue it burns.
Walking on a straight line.
It’s okay, I’ll never learn.

Walking on a straight line:
I could leave the past behind.
Walking on a straight line.
I roll the tape and I rewind.

I could tell you that I’m walking on a straight line quickly as I can.
It never matters where I go because I always end up just where I began.
