  • As life goes on I'm starting to learn more and more about responsibility
    I realize everything I do is affecting the people around me
    So I want to take this time out to apologize for things I have done
    And things that have not occurred yet
    And the things they don't want to take responsibility for

    I'm sorry for the times I left you home
    I was on the road and you were alone
    I'm sorry for the times that I had to go
    I'm sorry for the fact that I did not know
    That you were sitting home just wishing we
    Could go back to when it was just you and me
    I'm sorry for the times I would neglect
    I'm sorry for the times I disrespect

    I'm sorry for the wrong things that I've done
    I'm sorry I'm not always there for my sons
    I'm sorry for the fact that I'm not aware
    That you can't sleep at night when I am not there
    Because I am in the streets like everyday
    Sorry for the things that I did not say
    Like how you are the best thing in my world
    And how I'm so proud to call you my girl

    I understand that there are some problems
    And I am not too blind to know
    All the pain you kept inside you
    Even though you might not show
    If I can't apologize for being wrong
    Then it's just a shame on me
    I'll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    Said you can put the blame on me
    Said you can put the blame on me
    Said you can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me

    Sorry for the things that he put you through
    And all the times you didn't know what to do
    Sorry that you had to go and sell those packs
    Just trying to stay busy till you heard from Dad
    And you would rather be home with all your kids
    As one big family with love and bliss
    And even though Pops treated us like kids

    He got a second wife and you didn't agree
    He got up and left you there all alone
    I'm sorry that you had to do it on your own
    I'm sorry that I went and added to your grief
    I'm sorry that your son was once a thief
    I'm sorry that I grew up way too fast
    I wish I would've listened and not be so bad
    I'm sorry your life turned out this way
    I'm sorry that the FEDS came and took me away

    I understand that there are some problems
    And I am not too blind to know
    All the pain you kept inside you
    Even though you might not show
    If I can't apologize for being wrong
    Then it's just a shame on me
    I'll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me
    Said you can put the blame on me
    Said you can put the blame on me
    Said you can put the blame on me
    You can put the blame on me

    I'm sorry that it took so long to see
    They were dead wrong trying to put it on me
    I'm sorry that it took so long to speak
    But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani
    I'm sorry for the hand that she was dealt
    For the embarrassment that she felt
    Just a little young girl trying to have fun
    Her daddy should never let her out that young
    I'm sorry for Club Zen getting shut down
    I hope they manage better next time around
    How was I to know she was underage
    In a twenty one and older club they say
    Why doesn't anybody wanna take blame
    Verizon backed out disgracing my name
    I'm just a singer trying to entertain
    Because I love my fans I'll take that blame
    Even though the blame's on you
    Even though the blame's on you
    Even though the blame's on you
    I'll take that blame from you

    And you can put that blame on me
    And you can put that blame on me
    You can put that blame on me
    And you can put that blame on me Writer/s: Aliaume Thiam, Clinton Sparks, Durrone Moore

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United States-> This song makes me cry lol It shows How unstable is his life with his Family. He made this song to say "Sorry" To His WIFE & DAUGHTER

    I played it once BUT I don't have, to say Sorry to People!

    IT'S THIER OWN FAULT
  • Vince from Portland, Or@J - About ten years ago Akon was on tour with Gwen Stefani and he did a simulated sex dance on stage with a 15-year-old girl at a show in Trinidad and Tobago. I think the girl was a preacher's daughter. There was all kinds of negative publicity so I think Verizon pulled out of sponsoring Gwen Stefani's tour.
  • J from Www.myspace,com/juliamusicnote, MoWhat's the story behind the Gwen Stafani lines?
  • Cory from Hell, Kywas this song long composed? did he mean to do anything stupid in Trindad to gain publicty or to promote this song. akon is fooling us he did all the wrongs intentionally and pretend as if he is inspired to write this song by these incidents. i get it, he is never sorry, can't you see that. that how celibrities are. they are big fat liars and pretenders. don't be a victim of this song!
