Lyrics: Chicago – Hard To Say I’m Sorry

Classic Fridays

Hard To Say I’m Sorry

Chicago

Everybody needs a little time away

I heard her say from each other

Even lover’s need a holiday

Far away from each other

Hold me now

It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry

I just want you to stay

After all that we’ve been through

I will make it up to you, I promise to

And after all that’s been said and done

You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

Couldn’t stand to be kept away

Just for the day from your body

Wouldn’t wanna be swept away

Far away from the one that I love

Hold me now

It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry

I just want you to know

Hold me now

I really want to tell you I’m sorry

I could never let you go

After all that we’ve been through

I will make it up to you, I promise to

And after all that’s been said and done

You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

After all that we’ve been through

I will make it up to you, I promise to

You’re gonna be the lucky one

When we get there gonna jump in the air

No one will see us ’cause there’s nobody there

After all, you know we really don’t care

Hold on, I’m gonna take you there
