Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told, I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
Got caught up in all there was to offer
The cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried, I've fallen, I have sunk so low
I've messed up, better I should know
So don't come 'round here, tell me I told you so

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
I believed that we could change ourselves
The past can be undone

But we carry on our backs
The burden, time always reveals
In the lonely light of morning
In the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I've held so dear

I've fallen, I have sunk so low
I've messed up, better I should know
So don't come 'round here, tell me I told you so

Heaven bent to take my hand
I've nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know

Oh, they turned their heads embarrassed
Pretend that they don't see
It's one missed step, one slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried, I've fallen, I have sunk so low
I've messed up, better I should know
So don't come 'round here, tell me I told you so

I've messed up, better I should know
So don't come 'round here, tell me I told you so
