It always seemed that I was sorry for the things that I did,
But never did a thing about it 'til I let you in.
It's kinda funny about the time that I was falling apart.
You came and put me back together, now.

'Cause what I want
And what I need
Has now become the same thing
You've been offering.
As days go by,
I've finally become what you want me to be.

I still remember all the stupid things that I've said and done,
But still, you stuck around with me when all your friends said, "Run!"
Givin' me a name, I found myself inside all the flames.
Becoming everything for you again.

What I want
And what I need
Has now become the same thing
You've been offering.
As days go by,
I've finally become what you want me to be.

Don't tell me you saw it all along.
God help me, I never knew it alone.
Guess I was wrong.

What I want
And what I need
Has now become the same thing
You've been offering.
As days go by,
I've finally become what you want me to be.

And what I need
Has now become the same thing
You've been offering.
You've taken me,
And shape me to become what you want me to be.

    I feel this song is about him meeting this girl. He starts to date her and form a relationship. However, he never thought it was anything special and didn't treat it any different. But, she knew that something was special about him and kept with him. He then realizes that she was what he was looking for all along. He knows he treated her wrong in the past and is sorry. Now, he knows that she has shaped him into something that he was not before. He likes the change and knows that he can't live without her. So, now he is saying he is sorry for what he did and wants her in his life forever.
