All these lies are catching up to me
I just can't put it down and go to sleep
And I close my eyes and all that I can see
Is someone who I'm never gonna be

Could you remind me to forget?
The things I did the things I said
I hope that you can bring me back
I gotta to make it right

If I fall and crash and burn
At least I know you’re by my side
As I crawl past lessons learned
They remind me I'll survive

Silence just keeps screaming back at me
The ones I love I lost in memories
I wish that I could take back what was done
You can only change the person you've become

I've been broken I've been low
I've been hurt but I'll move on
I have to try and find a way
To leave it all behind

If I fall and crash and burn
At least I know you’re by my side
As I crawl past lessons learned
They remind me I'll survive
I've been hurt and I've been scarred
At least I know that I'm alive
And If I fall and crash and burn
At least we both know that I tried

All of the things that I tried say
All of the words just got in the way
I’m waiting here, I need your help
Don't leave me down here all by myself

Could you remind me to forget?
The things I did the things I said
I hope that you can bring me back
I gotta to make it right

If I fall and crash and burn
At least I know you’re by my side
As I crawl past lessons learned
They remind me I'll survive
I've been hurt and I've been scarred
At least I know that I'm alive
And If I fall and crash and burn
At least we both know that I tried

    General CommentI'm not positive but I think the chorus goes:

    If I fall and crash and burn
    At least I know you’re by my side
    As I crawl past lessons learned
    They remind me I'll survive

    Basically, I think this song is about someone realizing they don't like who they've become. They really want to change and be a better person, and they're saying that if they try, but fail, they know there's someone there to help them back up. Atleast, that's what I got out of it.

    My OpinionIt's a great song.

    In my opinion this song says that things may have gone badly in a relationship, but you'll still try one last shot to set things right. And if it doesn't work out you move on, with valuable lessons learned and knowing that you're just fine.
