Couldn’t save you from the start
Love you so it hurts my soul
Can you forgive me for trying again?
Your silence makes me hold my breath
All the time has passed you by

Ooo, for so long I’ve tried to shield you from the world
Ooo, you couldn’t face the freedom on your own
Here I am
Left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done is forgiven
You’ll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that stands forgiven

I watched the clouds drifting away
Still the sun can’t warm my face
I know it was destined to go wrong
You were looking for the greatest escape
To chase your demons away

Ooo, for so I long I’ve tried to shield you from the world
Ooo, you couldn’t face the freedom on your own
Here I am
Left in silence

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done is forgiven
You’ll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that stands forgiven

I’ve been so lost since you’ve gone
Why not me before you?
Why did fate deceive me?
Everything turned out so wrong
Why did you leave me in silence?

You gave up the fight
You left me behind
All that's done is forgiven
You’ll always be mine
I know deep inside
All that stands is forgiven

    For me it means that the singer would have forgiven her lover for all the bad things he had had done to her

    this song makes me think a lot of things. i think she was trying to protect someone and they got hurt and wont speak to her or something. it sound cheesy, i know.
