Verse 1

I can't shake this feeling that I let you down.

I burnt all your principles to the ground.

But honey, I had no choice but to peace out.

I wish you could somehow hear my heart shout.

Chorus

I'm sorry, I should have just said no.

But I promise I didn't let go.

Couldn't avoid what I should have but

I swear on all the love in my heart

That I behaved the best that I could.

Cause I could hear you say, "Girl, be good".

Verse 2

You told me the last day to pick friends with care.

Tell me my efforts haven't been stripped bare.

I'm trying my best to do the right thing here.

Tell me I haven't become what I fear.

Chorus

I'm sorry, I should have just said no.

But I promise I didn't let go.

Couldn't avoid what I should have but

I swear on all the love in my heart

That I behaved the best that I could.

Cause I could hear you say, "Girl, be good".

Bridge

I wish it hadn't begun,

But at least it's over and done.

And I won't do it again, I promise.

Chorus

I'm sorry, I should have just said no.

But I promise I didn't let go.

Couldn't avoid what I should have but

I swear on all the love in my heart

That I behaved the best that I could.

Cause I could hear you say, "Girl, be good".
