My personal, parenting theme song as I creep every so cautiously into the teen years with my two oldest.
I'm gonna let you down.
I know that now.
Make you cry, I know I will.
Why should you believe I would never leave
Or that I love you still?
For all the by and by and hard as we try
The bough breaks and the cradle falls.
For everything I do that will tear at you.
Let me say I'm sorry now.
So you can sing your song
You can get it wrong
You can kiss the rock of ages
And in your wildest dreams
You might see between the liars and the sages
You can walk a while down the mystery mile
You can beat the drums of freedom
And in love and war, through the rush and roar
You just call 'em like you see 'em.
-Shawn Colvin, Let Me Say I'm Sorry Now -
