Standing in the doorway, holding back the flood. What would you say? Would it be the truth? Could there be forgiveness for all you put them through. Don’t walk away. Reach out and say… Chorus I know I’ve hurt you, I know I’ve let you down. When you needed me I was not around And I’m sorry for my selfish ways Please forgive the same mistakes If you had just one moment to let it all be known Would you stand silent and deny your own Could you feel the longing, the pleading of an eye Or would you be cold hearted, too dead inside to cry Don’t walk away, reach out and say… (Chorus) Is it too late to reach out, stretch an open hand? However did it come to this? I don’t understand. Don’t walk away, reach out and say… (Chorus)
