The Ugly Things

Oh, I'm gonna make it up to you somehow
For all I put you through
For the ugly little things I do

Oh, I'm gonna make it up to you somehow
'Cos you understand so well
When something I can't tell is on my mind

I'm gonna try to get a hold of myself
And ask for one more chance
'Cos for you I got so much romance

I'm gonna try to get a hold of myself
And this time I really will
'Cos if you want me still
Baby say you will, you will be mine
One more time

'Cos baby it's wrong expecting you
To understand all the things I do
And baby I want you to remain
'Cos if you don't, girl
I know, I know I'm to blame

I'm gonna make it up to you somehow
And this time I really will
'Cos if you want me still
We can climb any hill
And those ugly things, those ugly things
Those ugly things, I'll make them up to you
