and it was all that you could do
to be there for me now.
but still i don't come through.
you were there for me,
but still i don't come through.

there are things i can't erase.
and i can't go back, i know.
but that's how consequences go.
and the consequence of all this is a brand-new low.

all the times when
(all the times when)
all the times when i fail me now

and you gave everything you had
and i wish i felt the same.
but still, i don't come i don't come through.
even i don't see what i don't see in you.

had the circumstances changed,
then it may have worked, i know.
the one thing i can't let go.
so the circumstances dictate that i should go.

all the times when
(all the times when)
all the times when i fail me now

(don't fail me now, don't fail me.)
(don't fail me now, don't fail me)
(don't fail me now, don't fail me)

forgive me now
forgive me now
forgive me now
forgive me...
