  • I know you're hurt, I know it's my fault
    But I've kept "I'm sorry" locked in a vault
    I know that time just keeps going on
    And words by themselves can't right all the wrongs
    In a world that's gone crazy, you don't know what's true
    Most people don't change, but some people do

    Some people quit drinking too much
    And some people quit lying
    Some people decide to grow up
    But it's never good timing
    Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
    But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do

    Some people say sorry to hear it's okay
    But I know it's not so you don't have to say
    That you understand 'cause I know you don't
    And neither do I, that don't mean that I won't
    Try everyday to show you the truth
    Most people don't change, but some people do

    Some people quit drinking too much
    And some people quit lying
    Some people decide to grow up
    But it's never good timing
    Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
    But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do

    So whether you kiss me or you close the door
    Just know that I'm better than I was before

    Some people quit drinking too much
    And some people quit lying
    Some people decide to grow up
    But it's never good timing
    Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
    But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do
    I'm hoping some people do Writer/s: Jesse Frasure, Matt Ramsey, Shane Mcanally, Thomas Rhett

  • Stacey from CaAbsolutely LOVE this song. I heard it for the first time, just now and was in tears before it ended. Beautifully written, authentic and so incredibly real and true to life. As a recovering Alcoholic, with 2,837 days of sobriety, I also felt a yearning from the singer for a second chance within the lyrics, but an air of acceptance, whatever the result. It reminds me to NEVER count someone out (including ourselves) because they just may surprise you.
    Thank you for writing this☺️
  • My Three Son’s from Pa.My oldest Son struggles with alcohol.he has a beautiful wife and 2 children. He confessed a problem 4 years ago after the birth of his daughter when the marriage nearly ended. He has done AA with some success but has had some relapses. After the most recent week, I heard this song and the words were right on point. The world going crazy as well. I’ve listened over and over and forwarded thevutube video to my daughter in law and Son
