"Living Proof" as written by and Cameron Leahy....
One more chance, it's all I’d ever ask for
I've been standing, waiting at your front door
I won't go, been waiting for hours (wait up)

Out of bed and looking in the mirror
Every day it gets a little clearer
If you go, I'm patiently waiting (wait up)

I'm climbing the walls, I'm searching for answers
The gears in my mind, are turning like dancers
I'm trying to find, the words but I just can’t speak

I'm living proof, broken and defeated
I'm the shattered youth and no one could believe it
If I can’t have you, well darlin' I just can't go on

And if I swear, swear to make it better
Would you stick you around, I know that it will never
Be the way it was, but maybe we can make this right
Show me where the light is leading

Sit and stare, I wonder what you're thinking
Sweat falls down, my stomach starts the sinking
Where are you? I'm patiently waiting (wait up)
Just last night you said you didn't love me
Well that's alright, I know that you're above me
Memories past, they're flooding around me (wait up)

I'm wondering why, why did I do it?
And watching you cry, can barely get through it
I'm sorry I swear, I'm sorry for what I did

I'm living proof, broken and defeated
I'm the shattered youth and no one could believe it
If I can't have you, well darlin' I just can't go on
And if I swear, swear to make it better
Would you stick you around, I know that it will never
Be the way it was, but maybe we can make this right
Time stands still, if you stay, I will

I wanted to tell, tell you my secrets
I want you to know, know I believe this
I wanted to tell, tell you everything

I wanted to tell, tell you my secrets,
I want you to know, know I believe this
I wanted to tell, tell you everything

I'm living proof, broken and defeated
I'm the shattered youth and no one could believe it
If I can’t have you, well darlin' I just can't go on
And if I swear, swear to make it better
Would you stick you around, I know that it will never
Be the way it was, but maybe we can make this right
So let it go

So get up, get up, get up, it's deep inside of you
Now wake up, wake up, wake up, it's deep inside of you
So get up, get up, get up, it's deep inside of...

    General CommentI can relate to this song so much.
    To me, it's about someone who does the person they're in relationship with wrong, and they want another chance because they regret it so much.

    Song Meaningthis explains my situation completely, so ill use my situation to explain the song;
    me and my boyfriend broke up because i screwed up & made a mistake. i still really love him & we are still fighting. this is the second time i screwed up and i just want one more chance, because i dont want anyone but him. i know our relationship wont get back to normal, or atleast will take awhile, but im willing to try anythingg. the thing was, i kept my mistake a secret, and my friend betrayed me and told my boyfriend what i did, so the 'i wanted to tell, tell you my secrets' part is just perfect. and 'i wanted to tell, tell you everything' fits perfect cuz i told him only half the truth at first.
