"I'M SORRY"

Verse 1:
I guess we will have tears in Heaven,
Thinking of things we failed to do,
And of the sharp words roughly spoken in our haste
To our dear loved ones here
Who we'll wish that we'd been kinder to.

Chorus 1:
Though tears may fall in that day
And Jesus will wipe them away,
Why should we wait 'til Heaven to say,
"I'm sorry!"

[Two times]

Verse 2:
I want to ask you to forgive me,
I wouldn't hurt you for the world!
My foolish pride kept me from saying, "I was wrong!"
We're learning as we live.
Will you forgive my unkind words?

Chorus 2:
I just want to open my heart
So this doesn't keep us apart.
Why should I wait 'til Heaven to say,
"I'm sorry!"

Bridge:
Sometimes we say things
We don't mean to say.
It's so sad that we can hurt
The ones we love this way!

Verse 3:
[Spoken Dad]:
-I guess we will have a few tears
When we get There.
We'll be sorry for those cross words then,
That we spoke so quickly,
So gruffly and roughly and impatiently.
I'm sorry I spoke to you that way!
Please forgive me!

[Repeat chorus 1]

Why should I wait 'til Heaven to say,
"I'm sorry!"
