not so long ago, when i was just a child
i never realized the way i felt inside
and how much you meant to me
how much you meant to me
and i don’t think i’ve ever told you so
and i thought you’d like to know
that now i see and i can understand
i understand

i was unkind, i must have been blind to your sorrow
and night after night, trying to live with your sorrow
and i was a b*st*rd and i was wrong
and i was lost in things i’ve done
and i was stealing just for fun
and it was breaking your heart

so long ago, when i was just a child
i never understood, never realized
how much you meant to me
how much you meant to me
and i don’t think i’ve ever told you so
and i thought you’d like to know
that now i see and i can understand
i understand

i was unkind, i must’ve been blind to your sorrow
night after night, tryin’ to live with your sorrow
i was unsure, and lookin’ for more, i was anxious
to be on my own, livin’ at home i was restless
and i was a b*st*rd and i was wrong
and i was lost in the things i’d done
and i was stealin’ for fun
and it was breakin’ your heart
it was breakin’ your heart
