Maybe I'm Plain


Because I'm always making

The same mistakes over again

When I know down deep

Not many more

Of my foolish mistakes

You'll be able to stand.

I keep telling myself

How dear you are to me

But action speaks

Louder than words

Changes in me

Is what you need to see.

Maybe I'm plain crazy

Doing the things I do

I'd understand

If you told me

You've had enough

I wouldn't blame you.

Just one more chance

Is all I ask

For me to try

Changing my ways

And if I don't

I'll understand

If you tell me one last time
