VAIN REGRET - Allegra Broughton & Sam Page ©2017

 

Vain regret, vain regret

I don’t want to remember but I can’t forget

Those memories keep ramblin’ cross my mind

You steal my good times and my sleep

Dark, dark water that’s way too deep

Oh Lord, spare me from vain regret

 

Chances missed, opportunities gone

You can sit and cry when you’re all alone

It surely don’t make no difference anyhow

Butter that bread, you drop it on the floor

It’s long gone, but still you holler for more

Nothing left to eat but vain regret   

 

Vain regret, vain regret

I don’t want to remember but I can’t forget

Those memories keep ramblin’ cross my mind

You steal my good times and my sleep

Dark, dark water that’s way too deep

Oh Lord, spare me from vain regret

 

You win the battle, but you lose your friends

The going’s good, it looks like it won’t end

But all good things must pass in time, they say

You’re runnin’ toward that finish line

Someone calls your name, and then you find

Nothing breaks your stride like vain regret

 

Vain regret, vain regret

I don’t want to remember but I can’t forget

Those memories keep ramblin’ cross my mind

You steal my good times and my sleep

Dark, dark water that’s way too deep

Oh Lord, spare me from vain regret

 

 

You steal my good times and my sleep Dark, dark water that’s way too deep

Oh Lord, spare me from vain regret Oh Lord, spare me from vain regret

Oh Lord, spare me from vain regret
