Great Big Sea — My Apology lyrics

It's not the way that I intended this
I didn't realize, how much I would miss...
But with every parting of our company
I hate to think, what it has done to me
Chorus:
You didn't see, that I was sorry
This has to be, my apology
When cruelty comes with blind indifference
My humanity becomes my best defense
But if you consider the alternative
I really didn't have that much to give
A tragic victim of my circumstance
Never give the devil a second chance
If you do you know that you never will
Probably best to forget and begin again
