What have I done?
I wish I could run,
Away from this ship going under
Just trying to help out everyone else
Now I feel the weight of the world is on my shoulders

What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch tumbles down?
'Cause my best intentions
Keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take for me to get it right, to get it right?

Can I start again, with my fate again?
'Cause I can't go back and endure this
I just have to stay and face my mistakes,
But if I get stronger and wiser, I'll get through this

What can you do when you're good isn't good enough?
And all that you touch tumbles down?
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take for me to get it right?

So I throw up my fists, throw a punch in the air
And accept the truth that sometimes life isn't fair
Yeah, I'll send down a wish and I'll send up a prayer
And finally someone will see how much I care

What can you do when you're good isn't good enough?
And all that you touch tumbles down?
My best intentions keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take to get it right, to get it right?

    General CommentI like this song very much.
    Leah Michele's voice is definitely amazing.
    I think we all have times when we feel that no matter what you do, nothing goes right, you try to do things in the best way but you end up hurting the ones you love
    I think is also a song about redemption, about the sincere intention to get things right when you know you made a mistake
