You were waiting for me, you saw me, you saw me
As I wish the whole world would
You would never hurt me, desert me or work me
For all the things you thought you should
You would lick the tears from my eyes when I cry
How I missed you when I was gone
Hurt me so to leave you deceive you I need you
I believe in you.

I, I never meant to let you down
Awake with a stake in my eye
I never meant to let you down
I'm trying not to fall apart

Now all I have is riches and stitches and pictures
But money could never buy what you give
Though my heart is achin' and breakin' I'm takin'
Most of what you send my way
I want just to hold you, unfold you, I told you
I am coming back for you
I know we will be okay everyday
The sun shines a little brighter

I, I never meant to let you down
Awake with a stake in my eye
I never meant to put you down
I'm trying not to fall apart

I never meant to let you down
Awake with a stake in my eye
I never meant to put you down
I'm trying not to fall apart
I'm trying not to fall apart

When in the night we'll set a light
I'm wishing with all of my mind

Oh no, I never meant to let you down
I never meant to put you down
I never meant to let you down
Awake with a stake in my eye
I never meant to put you down
I'm trying not to fall
