Cory Asbury – I’m Sorry


Looking at the landscape of this broken life
Triage to decipher, if anything survived
The blast had quite an impact, radius for miles
From the southern coast of Florida to the hills of Carolina
And everything has changed

‘Cause when you’re just a kid, words can take a toll
And a word unfitly spoken, can steal an apple’s gold
Stranded in the fallout, wounded and alone
Is this an emergency, is anybody home?
And everything has changed

Is this what growing up supposed to look like?
Thought I’d be learning how to love, instead I’ve only learned to fight
I was only trying to walk beside You
I guess I just got in the way

Sometimes all you need is the medicine of time
To lead you to the gold beneath the wreckage of your mind
‘Cause I was not your failure and you were never mine
And we were made to see through much more sympathetic eyes
But everything has changed

Is this what growing up supposed to look like?
Thought I’d be learning how to love, instead I’ve only learned to fight
I was only trying to walk beside You
I guess my pride got in the way
But if I ever caused you pain, could I be the first to say
I’m sorry

I won’t give up on You, if You don’t want me to
I won’t give up on You, did You expect me to?
I can’t give up on You, even if You want me to
I won’t give up on You, I don’t know what I’d do
But everything has changed
