"Giving Me A Chance" as written by and Walter Andre De Backer....
You know I never want to let you down
It cuts me up to see you sad
And I wish that I could undo what I've done
Give back the faith in me you had

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

You know I love you more than anyone
But I get a little wrapped up in myself
But you know I never want to do you wrong
Bring into question what we have

Oh yeah
I know I let you down
I know I let you down
But you're giving me a chance

Oh yeah
I know I let you down
I know I let you down
But you're giving me a chance

    General CommentThis is the most beautiful song. I heard him talking about it on Triple J, he was talking about how difficult this song was to write because it was about something he really wasn't proud of. He also said that he wasn't sure how he was going to go with performing it live as it was such a painful and personal thing for him to think about, let alone share with the world. I respect him so much, this song is lovely and although 'Somebody that I used to know' is incredible, I think this one beats it due to the humility and honesty he brings. X

    General CommentAlso a couple of lyric corrections:

    You know I never want to let you down
    It cuts me up to see you sad
    And I wish that* I could undo what I've done
    Get* back the faith in me you had

    Oh yeah*
    Oh yeah*

    You know I love you more than anyone
    Might* get a little wrapped up in myself
    But you know I never want to do you wrong
    Bring you* to question what we have

    Oh yeah*

    I know I let you down

    I know I let you down

    But you're giving me a chance

    Oh yeah*

    But you're giving me a chance.*
