Well, if I didn't darling, I'm sorry
Did I reach out and hold you in my loving arms
Oh, when you needed me?
Now I realize that you need love, too
And I'll spend my life making love to you

Oh, I forgot to be your lover 
And I'm sorry, I'm so sorry

Have I taken the time to share with you
All the burden that love will fare?
And have I done the little simple things to show you
Just how much I care?
Oh, I've been workin' for you, doin' all I can
To work all the time didn't make me a man

Oh, I forgot to be your lover 
And I'm sorry, I'll make it up to you somehow, baby
I forgot to be your lover
Gonna make it up to you somehow
Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, baby
I forgot to be your lover
If you forgive me, I'll make it up to you
I'm only a man, and I forgot to be ....
