What have I done?
I wish I could run,
Away from this ship going under
Just trying to help
Hurt everyone else
Now I feel the weight of the world is on my shoulders

What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch tumbles down?
Cause my best intentions
Keep making a mess of things,
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take for me to get it right, to get it right?

Can I start again, with my fate shaken?
Cause I can't go back and undo this
I just have to stay and face mistakes,
But if I get stronger and wiser, I'll get through this

What can you do when you're good isn't good enough?
And all that you touch tumbles down?
Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things,
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take for me to get it right?

So I throw up my fists, throw a punch in the air,
And accept the truth that sometimes life isn't fair!
Yeah, I'll send down a wish and I'll send up a prayer
And then finally someone will see how much I care

What can you do when you're good isn't good enough?
And all that you touch tumbles down?
Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things,
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take for me to get it right?

    Rachel wasn't really aiming this at Quinn. She was really aiming it at Finn. After Rachel made out with Noah, a.k.a., Puck, and told Finn, he was like, I can't believe you did that to me? And then he broke up with. She was singing because she was jealous of what Finn and Quinn had. If she hadn't made out with Puck, she wouldn't be in this situation. She's angry with herself, because Finn wouldn't do that to her.
    All you people who think this is towards Quinn, are wrong. It's towards Finn. Rachel Finn.

    It means that once you love someone you will do anything for them. You try so many times to help but you just end up hurting yourself and everyone else. But if a person means this much to you, you can't give up. You have to try, and try, until you get it right.

    She's asking why when she has tried everything does she louse the one thing that she wants and she is also saying that every thing that she has tried to do like help someone has come back and bit her. I like how they link this song to loser like me.

    Love is what matters.
    Not Hatred, hatred is the dark opposite of love
    why can No-one understand why?
    Trust me You will find it in your heart and soul.
    Words to say:
    Do what you love and happiness follows.

    So send and unexpected hug or something to a friend or a family member:-)

    Thanks
    Gleek101.
