Description
You just keep paying for some bad decisions forever. This song was written as an apology, but it doesn't really help a much as I wish it did. Hope you never have to feel this way...

Lyrics
How many times can I say I’m sorry until I sound sincere?
How many times can I tell my story and try to make it clear?
If I had known it would be like this, those dice would never’ve been cast.
I bite my lip and I clench my fist, and I wish I could change the past.

I’m guilty as hell / I’m guilty as sin
I’m guilty as Jesse James.
That just the way things went.
I screwed it all up / I ruined your life
And no one will change the names
to protect the innocent.
It’s all my fault and none of your own.
Now we reap the bitter seeds I’ve sewn.

How many times can I lose this war and still preserve some pride?
The fall is what that comes before, and leaves regret inside.
If I had known it would be like this... imagine what could have been...
I bite my lip and I clench my fist, and I wish I could start again.

I’m guilty as hell / I’m guilty as sin
I’m guilty as Jesse James.
That just the way things went.
I screwed it all up / I ruined your life
And no one will change the names
to protect the innocent.
It’s all my fault and none of your own.
Now we reap the bitter seeds I’ve sewn.

And I deserve to bear the shame,
and I think I should have seen it comin’
If only I could make it change,
with all the power I could summon.

I’m guilty as hell / I’m guilty as sin
I’m guilty as John Wilkes Booth.
That just the way things went.
I screwed it all up / I ruined your life
I want to ignore the truth
to protect the innocent.
It’s all my fault and none of your own.
Now we reap the bitter seeds I’ve sewn.

Yes, It’s all my fault and none of your own
Now we reap the bitter seeds I’ve sewn.

And you vocal show a mature honest quality the rings true to the character of the song. Sounds like a been there done that kinda song to me.

Fantastic musical backdrop for this one, and mixed perfectly.

Gotta love this one to, thanks for the D/L

yep
I hope soon you can write a new verse to this one.
I think the drums could go lower in the mix and I'd bring the guitars way up front right below the vocals. the guitar has just the right tone for this. nice tune though.

Yeah, drums...
Percussion is the thing I'm trying hard to get a feel for, in very many ways. So I might be overdoing it a little. General question: do you tend to mix for headphones, monitors, car speakers, or those little plastic boxes on either side of the computer? That balance seems to be soooo critical in the percussion section.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
