Aisumasen (Im Sorry) - Lyrics by Yoko Ono


When i'm down, really yin,
And i don't know what i'm doing,
Aisumasen, yoko.
All i had to do was call your name,
All i had to do was call your name.

And when i hurt you and cause you pain,
Darlin', i promise, i won't do it again.
Aisumasen, yoko.
It's hard enough i know to feel your own pain,
It's hard enough i know to feel, feel your own pain.

All that i know is just what you tell me,
All that i know is just what you show me.

And when i'm down, really sanpaku,
And i don't know what to do,
Aisumasen, yoko san.
All i had to was call your name,
Yes, all i had to do was call your name.
