ANITA BAKER lyrics - I Apologize

ANITA BAKER
"I Apologize"
(Anita Baker, Barry J. Eastmond, Gordon Chambers)

Operator, get my lover on the line
Just the other night we had a terrible fight
But I admit it
I got out of control
But I still love my man with my body and soul
When the road gets rough we say things we should not say
But I never meant to treat my baby that way.

I apologize, believe me I do
I apologize, honest and true
I know I was wrong so I'm singing this song,
Trying to get thru to make it up to you
I apologize

Operator it was like a bad dream,
Ooh girl, you should have seen how I shouted and screamed
but I regret it 'cause I was unfair
Took it all out on him just because he was there.
When the road gets rough we say things we should not say
But I never meant to treat my baby that way.

I apologize, for I was unkind and I wish
That I could go back in time.
Erase the good-byes and rewrite my lines.
But, come rain or come shine,
I'm gonna do right this time.
I apologize.
