I'm sorry for not...

I'm sorry for not understanding you
or understanding you only too well;
for the times that I have made you blue
or hurt you in the place where you dwell.

I'm sorry that I learn things about you
then I use them for my manipulations;
for taking offense at things you do
then I cause you my own aggravations.

I'm sorry I helped to lead you astray
I'm sorry I'm not quite sorry enough;
using your weakness to get my own way
and making your life oh, so very rough.
