ive hurt you and i know it

your face tends to show it

each night you spend crying

cause of all my lying

you say im a good guy

im just going through a hard time

but the truth is i used you

although i never ment to

you tried so hard to save me

and harder to make me

into a good man

instead of this god damn

waste of a good heart

though we got a late start

you didnt give up on me

cause you saw what i could be

a man of misfortune

as bad as it seems

i had the world with you

and all of my dreams

you are the fire

that ignighted my soul

the light that would lead me

and the heat that soothed the cold

i tried hard to please you

and not to mistreat you

but what i didnt understand

is my addiction had the upperhand

there are a million things that i regret

the lessons that i didnt get

and should have learned long before

there were tell tale signs i just ignored

the only one who ever mattered

has a broken heart that i have shattered

if time alone can fix this mess

then being apart is for the best

and as i try to repent

i only ask you dont forget

there was a time when life was great

before i made all these mistakes

a man of misfortune

as bad as it seems

i had the world when i had you

and all of my dreams

you are the fire

that ignighted my soul

the light that would lead me

the heat that soothed the cold

so i have to learn to walk again

before i can get back my best friend

i must do this on my own

if i wish not to end up all alone

ill get through the fog and haze

and leave behind my childish ways

if im to grow i must understand

that its time for me to be a man

the time for games is dead and gone

and in playing them i was wrong

my early mid 20's have passed me by

but i didnt notice, i was lost in time

carpe deim the time has come

and my new life has now begun

i know this time i cannot fail

i cant keep living in this hell

mabey once ive found success

and cleaned up the life was a mess

ill come to you as a new man

and once again ask for your hand

but only if my word is true

will i ever ask for this of you

cause i could not bear or endure the pain

of ever hurting you again

so on the day i find myself

and get back into proper health

ill be the man i should have been

all along, then once again

ill have the strength to stand tall

and will not have to fear a fall

back down the latter of my success

and i can stand among the very best
