Hey, did you hear about my mistakes?
I never thought you'd see me looking down
Even though I made a mess of everything you made for me
All along you were there
Waiting like you said you always would
Yeah, you said you always would

We dont have to wait for anything at all now that I've learned
The school will never learn a thing
I can't believe that you would send your love to me now
Even though I don't deserve it

Forgive me, but I can't be everything you deserve
And I know it's too late to crawl back to you tonite
But theres a few things that I just need you to know
The way I felt when we were close
And how the stars explode everytime you are near

But all along you were there
Waiting like you said you always would
Yeah, you said you always would

I am so far, I couldn't see
But you made every day so sweet
All along you were there
Waiting by my side

Yeah, you love me even though I don't deserve it
You love me even though I don't deserve it

    General CommentThe guy in the song realizes how much this girl loves him, and feels ashamed because he thinks himself as unworthy of her affection. She faithfully remains by his side through thick and thin like she always promised. In the second stanza, the guy is puzzled by the fact that she would still stay devoted to him despite the fact that he doesn’t deserve it. The reference to "mistakes" and "looking down" suggests that he cheated on her, or did something else to hurt her. He feels deeply sorry for his mistakes and apologizes to her by stating that he can't be everything that she deserves in a boyfriend.

    I think this song is really sweet and I can relate to it myself. The lyrics and beat are amazing and are packed with feeling. It’s a shame that more people don’t listen to Daphne Loves Derby because their music is awesome.

    kenny's just singing about how he doesn't feel worthy of a girl and he's amazed that she loves him dispite his faults.

    General Commentwell to answer your question i think he whispers "i am so vile..." and yeah the rest is right. it makes sense both with the other lines and if he didnt think this girl was so in love with him at first. so yeahh.
