From the recording Sorry Isn't Good Enough

A few years ago I was in a country music competition at a fair in Washington State. I was scheduled to play my song "Plastic Love" with the house band and then I found out shortly before the competition that I had time to do 2 songs. I decided that I really wanted to do something with just my guitar and me but I really did not have any originals that stood up well with this kind of sparse instrumention.  So I set out to write a song that could work with just me and my guitar. The end result was "Sorry Isn't Good Enough." I didn't win at the fair with this song. Hmm... actually, I don't think I even placed in the first three ... and there were only 5 performers (Oops ;-).  Needless to say, I didn't do the acoustic version of this song for the album ;-)

Lyrics

    
 
You told me there’s nothing more I can say there’s nothing more I can doI’ve done enough to push you away you’re fed up you’re tired and throughI never wanted to walk on out on youBut with so much wrong it was the only right thing to do I knowLord I knowSorry isn’t good enough for what I’d done I wish I could go back in time and change the things I’ve doneI know I’ve crossed love’s fine lines and things just can’t be undoneI never wanted to hurt our love this wayWords aren’t enough but still I need to say I knowLord I knowSorry isn’t good enough for what I’d done I know were all but doneIt’s just so hard because I love you soI have to face myselfAnd live with how I let it all go I knowLord I knowSorry isn’t good enough for what I’d done
