  • What have I done? I wish I could run
    Away from this ship going under
    Just trying to help, hurt 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?
    When all that you touch tumbles down?
    'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
    I just want to 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 faith shaken?
    'Cause I can't go back and undo 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 your good isn't good enough?
    When 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 fist
    Throw a punch in the air
    And accept the truth, that sometimes life isn't fair
    Yeah, I'll send out a wish
    Yeah, I'll send up a prayer
    And finally, someone will see
    How much I care

    What can you do when your good isn't good enough?
    When 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?
    To get it right
