If I could take one thing back I would write the perfect song for you
You would have never left
And if the chords progress the way I mapped them out
They will wipe your tears away and all your doubts

Cause it’s always been for you
Every mountain scaled for you

And every single day I’m falling down
I never want to say ‘You’re mine, right now’
A tear rolls down your cheek and hits the ground
And I’m falling down

You sit alone inside your room and rust
You give your trust to those who don’t deserve your trust
You put yourself through hell as you sweat pound for pound
But as the drama fades, tell me what will resound

It has always been for you
I sing every song for you

Could you stay forever and a day
Together come what may
If only I could say what I’m thinking baby
If only I could finally face the truth
I have always loved you

    General Commentwhen i dumped my exboyfriend because he cheated on me, he gave me the lyrics to this song to describe how he felt.. anyways! i think its about a guy who cant commit, and he has hurt his girlfriend because of it. she thinks he doesn't care. and once she is gone, he realizes that he loves her. typical guy.

    General Commentah i love this song! this song is about a boy that can't really express his feelings for this girl but he knows he loves her and his whole life is all about her, it seems like his opportunity with her has passed though.......

    General CommentThis song is my faviorite song ever! and It is the only reason for my account here. The reason I love the song so much is because I think it is about a guy that is completely in love with a girl and she is totally clueless. Like she's a good friend or something. That's why he can't say "you're mine right now" because he knows she's not his. She is heartbroken from somebody else, that's why she is always trying so hard (sweating pound for pund) and she's being hurt constantly. He reminds him that she doesn't need to go through all of that and that she could just love him back and he'll do everything for her, just as he has been doing forever.

    This song is his way of finally confessing what he's felt for so long and he's doing it because he just can't take seeing her suffer so much. He wants to make it up to her with a beautiful song, and I relly think he did.
