If you're all I wanted, why can't I just stay?
But you cared enough to send me on my way.

I'm standing on the edge,
and I can't go back.
I can't bring myself to do it.
Ohhho.

If I'm all you wanted, then why don't you just stay?
But you're scared enough to send me on my way.

It's my life or something like it,
and I want it back.
I can't bring myself to do it.
Why do you care?
I can't bring myself to do it.
Ohhho.

Sometimes your best isn't good enough.
Sometimes your best isn't good enough (good enough).
Sometimes your best isn't good enough.
Sometimes your best won't do.

If you're all I wanted, why can't I just stay?
But you cared enough to send me on my way.

It's my life or something like it,
and I want it back.
I can't bring myself to do it.
Why do you care?
I can't bring myself to do it.
Why do you care?
I can't bring myself to do it.
Ohhho.

    General CommentHi everybody,

    I wrote this song. I'm really sorry if I messed it up. Just tell me. Don't criticize me. I couldn't find the lyrics anywhere on the web.

    But this song is about (I believe) a kid who is standing at an edge (going to kill himself) because a lot of people (parents, family, friend, etc.) expect more from him and he's trying his best.

    General Commentto me it sounds like it says

    If your all I wanted
    why can't I just stay?
    But you cared enough to
    send me on my way.

    and

    If I'm all you wanted
    why don't you just stay?
    But you stand enough
    to send me on my way

    Song MeaningI think this lyrics are about a man who is in love with a girl and does all he can to make her happy but she doesn't appreciate it and just messes with his feeling. He is depress and wish he never meant her and this depression has got him so down that he want to commit sucide but is to scared to.
