I’ve been mean, ugly, and hurtful I’ve been selfish and arrogant as sin I did everything I swore I would never do That’s why I find myself in the sad condition that I’m in I’ll play the fool again just like I’ve done a hundred times before And you’ll find me hat in hand when I come knocking on your door for
Just one drop From your ocean of mercy Just one drop From your forgiving sea I can’t stop All these torments that curse me But I know that I can change my ways If you’ll only bless my days With just one drop
I’ve exhausted every combination of the words in my vocabulary Sent smoke signals, drew pictures to bolster my apology Yet somehow there’s no end to the fatal missteps I can take And there’s no boundary to the beloved bonds I can break I don’t know what else I can do to solicit your sympathy But I’ll compensate your compassion if you only allow me
Just one drop….
I made my plea, I bent the knee But you put the gavel down and you turned your back on me
I’m done waiting and I ain’t gonna beg no more I can go one without you, I’ve gone without you before I’ve earned your animosity and I earnestly bear the blame Whatever made me grant you power and elevate your name? I’m gonna walk the earth and face whatever fortune may bring I’m going solo from here on in and I’ll never ask you for a thing
Not even one drop I don’t need your mercy I don’t need your forgiveness
