When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones,
And I will try to fix you,

High up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

    I dedicated this song too my mom, shes a drug addict. I've always been there for her even when everyone else gave up and I promised her I would fix her. One day I heard this song and started crying because it made me think of my mom. She is now in prison and is hopefully getting out this may. She promises to stay clean and be the mom I deserve as long as I stay by her side.

    The meaning seems so good. There's a someone I really love and he's an emo. I just love to watch him playing his guitar. But that person could not see me. I don't exist in his world. I want to try and try but in the end I always ended up disappointed. Just like this song. It's hard. Ill never know what will happen next if I will not try right? I just love this song!
