When I was young,
I was so full of fear
I hid behind anger,
Held back the tears

It was me against the world,
I was sure that I'd win
The world fought back,
Punished me for my sins

I felt so alone,
So insecure,
I blamed you instead
And made sure I was heard

And they tried to warn me
Of my evil ways
But I couldn't hear
What they had to say

[Chorus:]
I was wrong,
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong,
I realized now that I was wrong

And I think about my loves,
Well I've had a few
I'm sorry that I hurt them,
Did I hurt you too

I took what I wanted,
Put my heart on the shelf
How can you love me
When you don't love yourself

It was me against the world,
I was sure that I'd win
The world fought back,
Punished me for my sins

And they tried to warn me
Of my evil ways
But I couldn't hear
What they had to say

[Chorus:]
I was wrong,
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong,
I realized now that I was wrong
I was wrong (2x)

I grew up fast,
I grew up hard
Something was wrong
From the very start

I was fighting everybody,
I was fighting everything
But the only one
That I hurt was me

I got society's blood
Running down my face
Somebody help me
Get outta this place

How could someone's
Bad luck last so long
Until I realized
That I was wrong

[Chorus:]
I was wrong,
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong,
I realized now that I was wrong
