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

    Well it could mean two things: one part of me thinks about a relationship where the girl just needed him and he couldn't 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.

    Maybe it doesn't have to be about love even. Like for me and my gf right now are in this boat she hasn't left me yet but she probably on the verge of doing so. But its not becuase she doesn't love me cuz she does its why she has stayed with me so long. Its becuase she wants one easy things from me and for some reason I can't seem to do it and its not becuase I'm scared or don't want to its just cuz I don't know how to do it. Becuase if I did know how to do what she wanted id be doing it for her cuz I don't want to lose her.
