Well I should have told you I sold my soul to an angel
I should have told you this world is not my own
I should have wrapped you, wrapped you like a present
I should have gotten to you before you were grown

I should have whispered in your ear when you were lonely
I should have taken you, taken you by the hand
I should have told you you are, you are worthy
I should have shown you, you are, you are a beautiful man

I want to save you from yourself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to be inside you when I can
And I am doing the best that I can
For my beautiful man

I should have told you I would be difficult
I should have shown you the scars on my soul
I should have told you I wanted you to take care of me
Without allowing you any of my control

And I want to save you from myself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to be inside you when I can
And I am doing the best that I can
You beautiful man
I am doing the best that I can
Oh, you beautiful man

I should have told you I was not good enough for you
I should have whispered I am unkind

I want to save you from yourself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to save you from myself
I am doing the best that I can
For my beautiful...

...save you from yourself
I want to save you from everybody else
I want to save you from yourself
And I am doing the best that I can
for my beautiful man
For my beautiful man

    General CommentCan't believe there are no comments! This song is beautiful and full of emotion. I think it's about looking back on a relationship and thinking about the things she could have done better. She never let her lover know just how much she appreciated him and she was kinda wrapped up in her own insecurities. I want to bawl every time I hear the line " I should have told you I was not good enough for you/ I am unkind"
