Dimitri & The Scarecrow - Time That I've Stolen lyrics

INTRO:
Time That I Have Stolen *chuckles*
Funny statement, very potent
This goes to women who have to bear with us
Through all our times, check it

VERSE 1:
Break me out of this tumble, I'm funnelled in this tunnel
The scuffle of lovers is a ladder too steep to scale or straddle
The narrow paths are getting tighter
The fighter spirit is getting lighter
I'm trying to get out, but this isn't worth it
What is it in sticking to constantly hurting?
Lurking about the same alley ways
As the night decays under the moonlit gaze
We forecast many, many doormats
And before bad times, rolled back and swore to never hold back
I could eat up every word as I draw back
Un-surety has certainly settled in
In my melanin with emotion and I am trembling
Bellowing in a mellow decadence
The sentences I spoke, I am regretting ‘em
The naïve heart of erratic shivering
Severing miniature souls of the innocent
As a matter of fact; I've got a question
Perhaps you might understand better
“How do you unsay heavy things without un-securing your
Own embarrassment and trashing the tender heart of the beautiful?”
When every excuse you give sounds so flimsy and pitiful

Pre-Chorus:
And now that you're out of this
I never look back proudly saying that I'm proud of this
And honestly, I'm so sorry, so sorry

Chorus:
If I could just take back the time that I've stolen
I would replace that, without me involved
I'm not scraping for any gratitude
I'm so ashamed my, head hung low

VERSE 2:
I suppose, perhaps, I don't know… oh I'm blank
Debating in my conscience with the way that I act
The order of regret is a border of truth
Fixing ideas to this pompous and poisonous roof
Thinking your comfort zone is water proof
The tears of the wailing have already drenched the room
And you're stomping over emotion in an ocean
Where many have already fallen
No miracle will help you walk on ‘em
SO, we must endure this life to be pure of the pride
But I wanted a shortcut to say “How smart am I?!”
So my love I never did it right coz I had a strategy
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/dimitri-the-scarecrow/messenger-is-sender-the/time-that-ive-stolen.html]
A pattern mapping out how I would tender to thee
And only to wake up when it's already too late
Even if I could get you back, it wouldn't be the same
Bliss is a huge occurrence in a subtle setting
So hard to capture the authentic feeling, after spoiling it

Pre-Chorus:
But now that you're out of this
I could never look back proudly saying that I'm proud of this
And quite frankly, I really am sorry, so sorry

Chorus:
If I could just take back the time that I've stolen
I would replace that, without me involved
I'm not scraping for any gratitude
I'm so ashamed my, head hung low

VERSE 3:
There's so much in this world for me
But I believe that I met her when I wasn't ready
The soulmate mystery is a theory I ridiculed
You're cynical before the coincidence happens to you
Then it all plays back in the blur of your memory
As you watch and listen to her footsteps leaving
There's no time to be grieving at that moment
You're caught up in your own solitude of contempt
Then you realize how Rhythm & Blues makes sense
And obeisance it's so hard to be courteous
You realize how pathetic and the fool you are
How many crooners sang soulful misery with a guitar?
That stifling pride is now a crumbling lie
That name next to yours is now a hyphen in time
In Shona we say:
”The old feast doesn't quiet the child”
Without metaphor, reminiscing is pain that won't die

Pre-Chorus:
And since you've been out of this
It feels foul to allow for any sourness, and though it doesn't count for much
I really am sorry, I apologize

Chorus: x 2
If I could just take back the time that I've stolen
I would replace that, without me involved
I'm not scraping for any gratitude
I'm so ashamed my, head hung low

OUTRO:
Within the territory of just being a man
I know that I can be a problem
Say things that I don't mean, and be foul
I just want to make it alright for us to be able to have a conversation about it
So I just opened it up and said “I'm Sorry”
I really am sorry
