about

Sometimes I've said things that I wish I could rewind and then delete. Because some things, once said, can't be taken back.

lyrics

Words I Can’t Unsay

I’m sorry I shouted
Those words I said
Shoulda kept ‘em
To myself instead
You never know what will come
Out of my head
I said:
Words I can’t unsay
Words I can’t wish away
You’ll never look at me
The same way
I said words
I can’t unsay

Blame it on my mother,
Blame it on my dad
You oughta see my brother
If you think I’m bad
I come from a house of anger
And I grew up mad
Saying
Words I can’t unsay
Words I can’t wish away
You’ll never look at me
The same way
I said words
I can’t unsay

I’m so sorry I made you cry
For the rest of my life I’ll wonder why
Because saying I’m sorry
Doesn’t take it back
Baby that’s a fact

Guess I shoulda warned ya
Not to get too close
I hurt the ones
Who love me most
I saw that look;
You were pale as a ghost
Cause I said:
Words I can’t unsay
Words I can’t wish away
You’ll never look at me
The same way
I said words
I can’t unsay
