Forgive me, forgive me, my heart doesn't play kind with others
It's caused me such trouble with many sweet boys and their mothers
It leads them away with the sugar and then makes them stay with the spice
and proves what they say about "everything nice" 'ain't true
so forgive me, forgive me for everything I've done to you.

Sometimes I just can't help but wishing' that we were still children
Lovin' was easy, and baby, so was forgivin'
but I blew it back in that sandbox, I threw it all in your face
just so I could run off, replacing you with a fool
so forgive me, forgive me, my heart doesn't play by the rules.

I know it's all over now, I've ruined the chance of someday
and I guess, if it's best, I'll leave you alone- this is the last thing that I'll say:

Forgive me, forgive me, my heart doesn't play kind with others
Please don't speak too badly about me in front of your mother
She seemed so happy about us, she thought I was somebody good
but some things don't work out like they should and I let her down, too
Oh, won't you forgive me, 'cause baby, I can't forget you.
