I had big plans for our future
Said I'd give you the whole world somehow
I tried makin' good on that promise
Thought I'd be so much further by now
Never could build you a castle
Even though you're the queen of my heart
But I've had the best of intentions from the start

Now some people think I'm a loser
'Cause I seldom get things right
But you make me feel like a winner
When you wrap me in your arms so tight
Please tell me you will remember
No matter how much I do wrong
That I had the best of intentions all along

I gave you a ring
And I promised you things
I always thought we'd do
But my best-laid plans
Slipped right through my hands
To show my love for you
And if you could read my heart
Then you\'d know without exception
It was all with the best of intentions

Repeat Chorus

So here I am asking forgiveness
And praying that you'll understand
Don't think I take you for granted
Girl, I know just how lucky I am
Though you deserve so much better
You won't find devotion more true
'Cause I've had the best of intentions
Girl, I've had the best of intentions
Yes, I've had the best of intentions loving you

    General Commenti can't believe no one has written on this song... a man is confessing that although at times he may be full of pride, he is always humbled by his girl's presence and that he's always had the best of intentions no matter how rough things went.

    General CommentI think this is such a wonderful love song. So many people get married and things don't turn out the way they want their fairytale to be. It is about realization that nothing is perfect no matter how hard you try. And that no one is perfect.
