  • Lyrics
  • I made you laugh, I made you cry
    I made you open up your eyes
    Didn't I?

    I helped you open out your wings
    Your legs, and many other things
    Didn't I?

    Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
    The only one who let you go?
    The one you hurt so much you cannot bear?

    Well, we were good, when we were good
    When we were not misunderstood

    You helped me love, you helped me live
    You helped me learn how to forgive
    Didn't you?

    I wish that I could say the same
    But when you left, you left the blame
    Didn't you?

    Am I the greatest bastard that you met?
    The only one you can't forget?
    Am I the one your truth's been waiting for?

    Or am I just dreaming once again?
    Some dreams are better when they end

    Some make it, mistake it
    Some force and some will fake it
    I never meant to let you down
    Some fret it, forget it
    Some ruin and some regret it
    I never meant to let you down

    We learn to wag and tuck our tails
    We learn to win and then to fail
    Didn't we?

    We learn that lovers love to sing
    And that losers love to cling
    Didn't we?

    Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
    When will we learn to let this go?
    We fought so much, we've broken all the charm

    But letting go is not the same
    As pushing someone else away

    So please don't let on
    You don't know me
    Please don't let on
    I'm not here
    Please don't let on
    You don't love me
    'Cause I know you do
    I know

    That some make it, mistake it
    Some force and some will fake it
    I never meant to let you down
    Some fret it, forget it
    Some ruin and some regret it
    I never meant to let you down
    I never meant to let you
    I never meant to let you down
    I never meantWriter/s: DAMIEN GEORGE RICE
