Lessons learned and bridges burned to the ground
And it's too late now to put out the fire
Tables turned
And I'm the one who's burning now
Well, I'm doing alright till I close my eyes
And then I see your face and it's no surprise

Just like that I'm crawling back to you
Just like you said I would, yeah
Swallow my pride, now I'm crawling back to you
Yeah, I'm out of my head, can't wait any longer
Down on my knees, I thought I was stronger
Just like that like you said I'd do
Yeah, I'm crawling back to you

Time can heal, but the scars only hide the way you feel
And it's hard to forget how I left you hanging
Holding by a thread, and everything I've said
I regret it
Yeah, I was doin' alright, thought I could make it
Then I see your face and it's hard to fake it

Just like that I'm crawling back to you
Just like you said I would, yeah
Swallow my pride, now I'm crawling back to you
Yeah, I'm out of my head, can't wait any longer
Down on my knees, I thought I was stronger
Just like that like you said I'd do
Yeah, I'm crawling back to you

If you could find a way to give everything, I know you would
And I would take it all back if only I knew that I could
Lessons learned and bridges burned to the ground
And it's too late now to put out the fire

And just like that I'm crawling back to you
Just like you said I would, yeah
Swallow my pride, now I'm crawling back to you
Yeah, I'm out of my head, can't wait any longer
Down on my knees, I thought I was stronger
Just like that like you said I'd do
Yeah, I'm crawling back to you

Yeah, I'm crawling back to you
Ohhh, yeah, yeah!
Oh!

(Solo)

Crawling back to you
I'm crawling back to you
Ohhh

    I liked marti's demo version better. Daughtry changed the lyrics to make it more "radio friendly" but it just doesn't sound right with the changes. Still a big fan...

    It's pretty simple. He got into a spat with his lover/girlfriend/wife/whomever. Now, he's apologizing. Here's the correct lyrics.

    Lessons learned,
    And bridges burned to the ground.
    And it's too late now to put out the fire.
    Tables turned,
    And i'm the one who's burning now!
    Well i'm doing alright 'till i close my eyes,
    And then i see your face, and it's no surprise...

    (chorus)
    Just like that, i'm crawling back to you,
    Just like you said i would, yeah!
    I've swallowed my pride, now i'm crawling back to you.
    Yeah, i'm outta my head,
    Can't wait any longer.
    Down on my knees,
    I thought i was stronger.
    Just like that,
    Like you said i'd do...
    Yeah, i'm crawling back to you!

    Time can heal.
    But, the scars only hide the way you feel.
    And it's hard to forget how i left you hanging,
    On by a thread.
    Every thing i've said,
    I regret it!
    Yeah, i was doing alright, thought i could make it.
    Then, i see your face and it's hard to fake it!

    (chorus)

    (bridge)
    If you could find a way to forgive everything, i know you would.
    And i would take it all back, if only i knew that i could.

    Lessons learned,
    And bridges burned to the ground.
    And it's too late now to put out the fire.

    And, just like that, i'm crawling back to you,
    Just like you said i would, yeah.
    I've swallowed my pride, now i'm crawling back to you.
    Yeah, i'm outta my head,
    Can't wait any longer.
    Down on my knees,
    I thought i was stronger.
    Just like that,
    Like you said i'd do...
    Yeah, i'm crawling back to you.

    (ending)
    Yeah, i'm crawling back to you, yeah!
    Oh!
    I'm crawling back to you! Yeah, i'm crawling back to you!

    For me right now, it means a missed opertunity with an aquaintance i met in my gym... I was too paranoid that his very obvious 'hints' to me were not happening.. After 7 months, when i finally got myslef together again... I tried to let him know i was ready for this to happen.. And he freaked out! Now i've lost my buddy and the chance to form a nice relationship i fear. So sad.
