As It Is — Hey Rachel lyrics

[Verse 1]
A decade's worth of damage done in unsaid words,
We both know that's not what you deserved.
There was always love, it was there but never spoken of,
You held on when I was not enough.

[Pre-Chorus]
It's a shame, this has taken me so long to say.

[Chorus]
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry,
I was younger and scared when you needed me.
I was selfish and stubborn, a terrible brother,
You don't have to forgive me,
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry.

[Verse 2]
I always knew that I was responsible to guide you through,
But I was blind when looking out for you.
I was self-absorbed but I try not to be anymore,
I put your diary back in your drawer.

[Pre-Chorus]
It's a shame, this has taken me so long to say.

[Chorus]
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry,
I was younger and scared when you needed me.
I was selfish and stubborn, a terrible brother,
You don't have to forgive me,
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry.

[Bridge]
It's a shame, this has taken me so long to say to you.

[Outro]
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry,
I was younger and scared when you needed me.
I was selfish and stubborn, a terrible brother,
You don't have to forgive me.
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry,
I was younger and scared when you needed me.
I was selfish and stubborn, a terrible brother,
You don't have to forgive me,
No, you don't have to forgive me.
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry,
Hey Rachel, I'm sorry.
