Ellie, I’m sorry I needed to be right
It wasn’t worth the fight
Now that I’m alone here
Ellie, I’m sorry I couldn’t let it go
It was the little things I know
That brought me down here

So I’m not looking for a second chance
At some teenage romance
I just need you to forgive me
So that I can catch some sleep

Ellie, I’m sorry I couldn’t walk away
It was the stupid games I played
That brought you down, love
Ellie, I’m sorry I never could relax
Or put you in the past
Just know I wish I could have

So I’m not looking for another shot
By now I’ve had quite a lot
I just need you to forgive me
So that I can make my peace

Wherever I go, I take a piece of you with me from home
Whatever I do, I remember what you said to me
“Don’t ever let that ground get too heavy underneath your feet”
And if you taught me anything at all I guess it’s this:
How to love with your whole heart
And when it breaks, just how long it takes
To fix
