HALF HEARTED APOLOGY
(Dean Fields)

I heard about it in a truckstop in Bristol
(I called a friend that we both used to know)
Of how you met him and you soon would be married.
And you hoped I don’t show.
I know you meant what you said.
I wish I meant what I did.

Anyway, I’m sorry. So sorry now.

At seventeen I had a truck and your trust in me.
I drove them both about as far as they’d go.
Looking back I can see how I hurt you
But just cause I could.
I wouldn’t take back the years.
I’ve already cashed in your tears.

Anyway I’m sorry. So sorry now.

I had a plan to get all dressed up,
All messed up, and tear you down.

Seven years holding tight to a memory
You were bleeding scars from a fist like a rose.
Looking back I can see how I hurt you
But just like I wanted to.
My sister says how she hears you say I stole what you hold dear.
But, wasn’t it your idea?

Anyway I’m sorry. So sorry now.

      Awesome Rich! I’d love to hear it. Thanks for listening and dropping me a line!

        Dean, check out an old song by David Baerwald, “It Aint Easy”, on the David and David album Boomtown. It deals with this issue and is very beautiful as well.

        When are you coming to perform in NYC?

    Hitting way close to home. I love this song.

    “At seventeen I had a truck and your trust in me.
    I drove them both about as far as they’d go.
    Looking back I can see how I hurt you”

    …Those words sound so familiar. Song is on repeat!

  • Abigail says:

    Hey I was wondering if you could explain a little bit what this song is about? Thanks!

    • dean says:

      Hey Abigail-
      Its about how time gives the distance from our younger selves to be able to see how we’ve hurt one another. But even the most sincere apology doesn’t change anything. We’re not who we were…The offenders or the hurt.
      …And its about an old truck and old love.
