I'm the one that messed up so why do I feel so hurt inside
Always running from my problems trying to find a place to hide
And I'm the one always telling you to trust in me and confide
So why was it me sitting alone last night who cried?

I guess my problems weigh us both down
I just can't handle when you're not around
And I'm the one who walked away
When all I wanted was to stay
Now listen to me when I say
I need you in my life today

When I hold you, I don't care about anything else
But I was selfish and now I hate myself
How can I make things right?
When you touch me my mind goes numb
My heart beats crazy like a drum
Can I make this up to you tonight?

I wanna go to that place inside of you where problems don't exsist
The place I haven't been in so long, because things went wrong is now the place I miss

I guess my problems weigh us both down
I just can't handle when you're not around
And I'm the one who walked away
When all I wanted was to stay
Now listen to me when I say
I need you in my life today

I can't continue living this way
I need you, I need you today
I want to go back to the way things were
When everything else was just a blur
Erase the anger from the past
I'll try my hardest to make things last
But this is who I am

So if you leave me
I won't be angry
I would understand
But I'll miss you
The times I kissed you
And the times I held your hand

I screwed up now everythings wrong
Please just tell me this won't last long
Let's rise above this and come out strong

I guess my problems weigh us both down
I just can't handle when you're not around
And I'm the one who walked away
When all I wanted was to stay
Now listen to me when I say
I need you in my life today
