I’m sorry I’m not perfection
I’m sorry I’ll never be her
I’m sorry you can’t see more
I’m sorry you only see
The darkness in the light
I’m sorry a thousand times
For putting up a fight

Just one last I’m sorry
For everything I’m never

CalvinPeat: This is a great concept, and you've done a largely excellent job of capturing the voice of Mal.You convey Mal's inner struggle well. Perhaps, though, you could reflect the hope in verses 13-17 of Psalm 90 a bit more. A suggestion: in the current version, Mal seems to be losing hope in the idea of...
