Id Rather Be Sorry - Lyrics by Kris Kristofferson


Lyrics

If you hurt me, you won't be the first or the last
In a lifetime of many mistakes.
But i won't spend tomorrow regretting the past
For the chances that i didn't take.

'cause i'll never know 'til it's over
If i'm right or i'm wrong loving you,
But i'd rather be sorry for something i've done
Than for something that i didn't do.

When you touch me it's easy to make me believe
Tomorrow won't take you away
But i'd gamble whatever tomorrow might bring
For the love that i'm living today.

'cause i'll never know 'til it's over
If i'm right or i'm wrong loving you,
But i'd rather be sorry for something i've done
Than for something that i didn't do.

I know someday that i may wake up all alone
When the love i believed in has died
But at least i won't wonder what i might have won
>from the lifetime that i watched going by

'cause i'll never know 'til it's over
If i'm right or i'm wrong loving you,
But i'd rather be sorry for something i've done
Than for something that i didn't do.
