Said I'm sorry for everything that I ever done to you
(The apologies of a thug)
Baby
I'm sorry for all the times that I hurt you
Left, committed every crime except for murder (oh)
Infact you found a way to love me (yes)
And you still found a way to hug me (yes you did, lord)
I want up out these streets but ma, it's so hard (oh yes it is)
If it wasn't bad luck, it'd be no luck for R. (no luck for R.)
Cursin' you out, arguein' in public,
Girl I need you to believe that I,
I'm in the belly of the beast

(The apologies of a thug)
Said I'm sorry for everything that I ever done to you (said I'm so, so, so sorry)
Said I'm sorry for all the pain that I ever brung to you (oh yeah, mm)
I'm sorry baby for stormin' out of the house
And I apologise for all of those times that I made you cry (yeah)
I could never forget that, all the pain and drama I caused you
We were best friends, we put our chips all in (oh)
What I feel, you feel, what I go through, you go through (you go through)
And even when I was goin' through all that bullshit in the media (mm)

(The apologies of a thug)
Said I'm sorry for everything that I ever done to you (so, so, so sorry)
Said I'm sorry for all the pain that I ever brung to you (oh, to you, I'm sorry)
Now I'm sorry for all of the times that I didn't take you out (mm)
We were headed same direction 'til I chose my own route (yeah)
I want to be that man inside for you that's so great (oh yeah)
'Cause in the midst of this fame my life is like a buffet (yeah)
But you don' been beside me just like my shadow (ooh)
I cannot ask for more in a woman (oh-oh)
I'm sorry
Said I'm sorry for everything (ohh, sorry)
(The apologies of a thug)
That I ever brung to you (all of the pain I've caused you)
That I ever done to you (whoa, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry)
Said I'm sorry for all the pain (yes I am)

Never meant to make you cry
Somewhere girl to take me back
Said I'm sorry for everything (oh yeah)
(The apologies of a thug)
That I ever brung to you (that I ever brung to you)
(The apologies of a thug)
That I ever brung to you (I ever brung to you, yeah)
Said I'm sorry for everything that I ever done to you
(The apologies of a thug)
That I ever brung to you (oh you just let me back in)
(I'll never ever break your heart oh)
Said I'm sorry for all the pain that I ever brung to you

(said I'll never, never, never, never, never, never,
(The apologies of a thug)
Said I'm sorry for everything that I ever done to you
(The apologies of a thug)
Baby
I'm sorry for all the times that I hurt you
