You gave 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

All that you wanted, and all that you needed
Was a side of me I never let you see

I wish I could love you and make you believe it
Cuz that's all you ever wanted
That's all you ever wanted, from me

An oooohhh

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

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
Cuz that's all you ever wanted
That'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 a side of me I never let you see

I wish I could love you and make you believe it
Cuz that's all you ever wanted
Yeah That's all you ever wanted,
And that's all you ever wanted
That's all you ever wanted,

From me... oh, from me

    I think it is a song about miscommunication. How things can always go so wrong because of misunderstandings. By the time you figure it out it's too late.

    This song has a very big meaning to me. It describes the way a couple can be when they are just mad. A girl gives a guy chance after chance and he doesnt give her the love she needs. Now that she is gone, he realizes that over time he really does love her and now that shes gone he wants to prove it but he cant.

    Well it could mean two things: one part of me thinks about a relationship where the girl just needed him and he couldnt give that to her and now he looks back and knows that he couldve done more but now its too late.. The other part of me looks at this from a fathers point of view to a daughter that he never spent enough time with and now he's trying to give her what she wanted all of those years that he wasnt there by her side.. This part is coming from my past with my dad who is now trying to be the man that i wanted him to be.. The dad i needed him to be
