From the recording Kettle of Fish
I don’t know how it started; I don’t know why it did
This dirty little secret that I managed to keep hid
All the while I held your smile, I held a little on the side
But when I turned around you were gone - now everyone knows why
And nothin’ I can say will make things right
But won’t you give me one more chance before you say goodbye?
Well, a promise made is a promise kept but only ‘til it’s broke
I burned down the plans we made and sent ‘em up in smoke
But the hardest thing was to watch the shame and hurtin’ in your eyes
‘Cause it don’t take long for rumours to spread around a town this size
If I could I’d take back all the lies
Won’t you give me one more chance before you say goodbye?
Now the lights are on in your parent’s home and your car is in the drive
I drove around all night tryin’ to find a reason to stay alive
And though there’s not a word that I can say that will heal the hurt inside
We’ve come too far together - can’t you give it one more try
And let me back into your life?
Won’t you give me one more chance before you say
There’s nothing I can do will make things right
Please give me one more chance before you say goodbye
