You give me chances and I let you down
You waited for words that I couldn't get out
I have no excuses for the way that I am
I was clueless then, I couldn't understand

That all that you wanted
And all that you needed
Was a side of me I never let you see

And I wish I could love you
And make you believe it
Because that all you ever wanted
It's all you ever wanted,
From me, from me

Could I be selfish, or Lost in my pride
Afraid to be forward or just too scared to try
And now I'm without you, And it took distance to see
That losing you, means losing everything

When all that you wanted
And all that you needed
Was a side of me I never let you see
And I wish I could love you
And make you believe it
Because that all you ever wanted
It's all you ever wanted from me

And is it too late and are you too far
To turn around and let me be... let me be

All that you wanted
And all that you needed
I'll show the side of me I never let you see
I wish I could love you
And make you believe it
Because that's all you ever wanted
That's all you ever wanted
And that's all you ever wanted
It's all you ever wanted
From me
Oh, from me

    A guy couldn't be everything that the girl of his dreams wanted him to be. This guy is broken hearted because he loves this girl so much and he feels he just isn't good enough

    This guy loves this girl, but he took her love for granted, she gave him chances to fix his problems, he said he would, but then didn't ever work at it, now hit sits without her, wanting to be with her, but it might just be too late. Oh wait, that's my life and this song.

    Someone who has blocked most of themselves off from being hurt too much in the past, and who now doesnt' let anyone in, but it only ends up causing them more pain cause they end up lossing something they love because they are too scared to open up.

    I look at it as if the guy that's had 5 years to tell me this, is barley telling me this and is now going off to college, and it reminds me of what ive always wanted from him..
