can you forgive me again?
i don't know what i said
but i didn't mean to hurt you

i heard the words come out
i thought that i would die
it hurts so much to hurt you
then you were mad at me
you're not shouting anymore
you're silently...broken
i'd give anything now
to kill those words for you
each time i say something i regret
i cry, i don't wanna lose you
but somehow i know that you will never
leave me...yeah

'cause you were made for me
somehow i'll make you see
how happy you make me...oh
i can't live this life
without you by my side
i need you to survive
so stay...with me
you look in my eyes
and i'm screaming inside
that i'm suffering

will you forgive me again?
you're my one true friend
and i never meant to hurt you

    General CommentThis song makes me want to cry. It reminds me entirely too much of someone in my past. I desperately want him to forgive me for fucking things between us up, but he won't. I love Evanescence, they are one of the most beautiful bands I have ever heard.

    General Commentthis is the sweetest song! if i heard this last time i got in a huge fight with one on my friends i wouldve related to everything, but i think it has to do with someone whos gotten in a fight with someone else, like maybe taken their anger out on them, and they feelign bad being it hurts them that they hurt someone they loved, and even though they arent fighting, theyre both still hurt

    General CommentThis song is just simply about forgiveness and realizing when you really mess up in a friendship. I'm in love with it. Evanescence = Amazing! <3

    General Commentthis song makes you think about when you fight the hardest is not to forget but the first thing is much harder to do is forgive that person and this song fits the bill.

    General CommentThanx for the corrections, some people have no ear for thing like that...not that i do or anything.....anyways
    I love this song, i can totally relate to it,
    to me it sounds like a girl who has a great love but whenever she makes a mistake shes scard (or however u spell it! we cant all be good at everything!!!!) he'll leave her, even though she knows he really wont.

    General CommentThis was actually one of the first songs I heard from Evanescence the first time was like WOW! Ever since I still have the same reaction to it when I listen. Actually at one point I listened to this song I cried because of the situation I was, and still am, in. It's getting beter though I promise

    General CommentSince the people, whoever they may be, got the song lyrics wrong, it makes you think if they were really listening to the song and comprehending what the meaning was behind it. Just a comment.
