"Fallen" as written by Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel Wayne Sermon and Benjamin Arthur Mckee....
Heaven bend to take my hand and lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer to a long and painful fight
Truth be told, I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way, I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried
I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better, I should know
So don't come 'round here and
Tell me, "I told you so"

We all begin with good intent
When love was raw and young
We believe that we can change ourselves
The past can be undone
But we carry on our back, the burden time always reveals
In the lonely light of morning
In the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I've held so dear

I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come 'round here and
Tell me I told you so

Oh

Heaven bend to take my hand
I've nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh, they turn their heads, embarrassed
Pretend that they don't see
That it's one missed step, one slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried
I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come 'round here and
Tell me I told you so

Oh
I've messed up
Better, I should know
Don't come 'round here and
Tell me I told you so
