So I was thinking about
what I'd write to you
It's been three
Days since I heard your voice
and I aint been right without you


A one night stand and a photograph
made its way to you
I took a chance
paid the consequence

this is why I'm writing to you.
Was it a big surprise
Is it too late to try
Go ahead and cry
It was just one little lie


I hope that you don't mind
I'll make it up this time
Is it too late to try
it was just one lie

Baby I think I owe you one
every time I come around you're ready for the letdown.
Here I sit alone it was my fault I know.
If I was you I wouldn't take me back
Just let me down.
Slowly please.

Its not hard for me to say the things that you do
You bring out the best in me
When its not the best for you
It's been a long time since I didn't know
What to do
Where to go
could we forget yesterday
Start over again


Was it a big surprise
Is it too late to try
Go ahead and cry
It was just one lie

Baby I think I owe you one
every time I come around you're ready for the letdown.
Here I sit alone it was my fault I know.
If I was you I wouldn't take me back
Just let me down. (X2)
Slowly please.


You need to believe it when I say that I am so so so sorry for the things I put you through
Never meant to take the trust from you (X4)


Baby I think I owe you one
every time I come around you're ready for the letdown.
Here I sit alone it was my fault I know.
If I was you I wouldn't take me back
Just let me down. (X3)

    General CommentI love this song :]

    I'm pretty sure these are the lyrics for the question marked parts...

    You bring out the best in me
    When its not the best for you

    General CommentI believe this song is about a guy who always messes up in his relationship and always lets the girl down. Basically saying she shouldn't take him back if he was her.

    I love this song and beat. Perfect.

    General Commenti believe this song is about a guy who cheated on a girl, and he cares about her oh so much, but he isnt sure what to do anymore. he wants the girl to, but he knows that she i going to get hurt again, but at the same time he wants her to take him back, because he does care about her so much.




    i love this song, these guys put on an amazing show
    i saw them on sunday, it was amazing.
    and i was hanging out with them after the concert
    their all so amazing and down to earth, i love them.

    General CommentI love this song! I think it's about this guy who really carerd (and possibley loved) about this girl but had a one night stand, and now she always excpects something new to bring her down. And he's saying how she shouldn't take him back (but at the same time trying to prove that he really does care, and maybe still stay) because he doesn't want her to get hurt. And saying if she lets him go do it easily.
    LOVE THIS SONG!

    General CommentThis sort of reminds me of my ex in a way, but he'd be singing it to me.

    "Its not hard for me to say the things that you do
    You bring out the best in me
    When its not the best for you
    It's been a long time since I didn't know
    What to do

    Slowly please."

    He would never but it makes me think of how he would lie to me and I would still hang around because I cared about him and wanted to make sure that he was always alright. He started drugs and I hated it, he would be so mean to me but I would always forgive him. Every time he comes around now I'm ready for the letdown...

    General CommentI think it is about two people in a relation where the girl is putting in more effort than the guy. and so she knows he isn't right, but she is still surprised to find that he is cheating. And though this relationship is only hurting her, she still won't let it go. So he's asking her, "Hey this is crazy, just let it go, let me go. It's done."
