  • When I'm nervous I have this thing yeah I talk too much
    Sometimes I just can't shut the hell up
    It's like I need to tell someone anyone who'll listen
    And that's where I seem to fuck up, yeah
    I forget about the consequences,
    For a minute there I lose my senses
    And in the heat of the moment
    My mouth starts going the words start flowing

    But I never meant to hurt you,
    I know it's time that I learned to
    Treat the people I love like I wanna be loved
    This is a lesson learned,
    I hate that I let you down and I feel so bad about it
    I guess karma comes back around
    'Cause now I'm the one that's hurting yeah
    And I hate that I made you think that the trust we had is broken
    So don't tell me you can't forgive me
    'Cause nobody's perfect,
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, nobody's perfect

    If I could turn back the hands of time
    I swear I never woulda cross that line
    I should of kept it between us
    But no I went and told the whole world how I feelin', oh
    So I sit and I realize with these tears falling from my eyes
    I gotta change if I wanna keep you forever
    I promise that I'm gonna try

    But I never meant to hurt you,
    I know it's time that I learn to
    Treat the people I love like I wanna be loved
    This is a lesson learned
    I hate that I let you down
    And I feel so bad about it
    I guess karma comes back around
    'Cause now I'm the one that's hurting yeah
    And I hate that I made you think
    That the trust we had is broken

    So don't tell me you can't forgive me
    'Cause nobody's perfect,
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, nobody's perfect

    I'm not a saint no not at all,
    But what I did it wasn't cool
    But I swear that I'll never do that again to you
    I'm not a saint, no not at all,
    But what I did it wasn't cool
    But I swear that I'll never do that again to you

    I hate that I let you down,
    And I feel so bad about it
    I guess karma comes back around
    'Cause now I'm the one that's hurting yeah
    And I hate that I made you think
    That the trust we had is broken
    So don't tell me you can't forgive me
    'Cause nobody's perfect, no

    And I hate that I let you down
    And I feel so bad about it
    I guess karma comes back around
    'Cause I'm the one that's hurting, yeah
    And I hate that I made you think
    That the trust we had is broken
    So don't tell me you can't forgive me
    'Cause nobody's perfect, yeah yeah
    Don't tell me, don't tell me
    Don't tell me, you cant forgive, no, no, no
    Because nobody's perfect, no Writer/s: Jessica Cornish, Andre Brissett, Claude Kelly, Michael R. Mentore
