I made you laugh, I made you cry,
I made you open up your eyes
Didn’t I?

I helped you open out your wings,
Your legs and many other things
Didn’t I?

Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
The only one who let you go?
The one you hurt so much you can not bear?

We were good when we were good,
When we were not misunderstood.

You helped me love, you helped me live
You helped me learn how to forgive,
Didn't you?

Wish that I could say the same,
But when you left, you left the blame.
Didn't you?

Am I the greatest bastard that you met?
The only one you can’t forget?
Am I the one your truth’s been waiting for?

Am I just dreaming once again?
Some dreams are better when they end…

Some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
I never meant to let you down

Some fret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
I never meant to let you down

We learn to wag and tuck our tails
We learn to win and then to fail
Didn't we?

We learn that lovers love to sing
And that losers love to cling
Didn't we?

Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
When will we learn to let this go?
We fought so much we've broken all the charm

Letting go is not the same
As pushing someone else away.

So please don’t let on you don’t know me!
Please don’t let on that I'm not here!
Please don’t let on you don’t love me,
‘Cause I know you do

Some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
I never meant to let you down

Some fret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
I never meant to let you down
I never meant to let you...
I never meant to let you down
I never meant......
