  • A strangled smile fell from your face
    It kills me that I hurt you this way
    The worst part is that I didn't even know
    Now there's a million reasons for you to go
    But if you can find a reason to stay

    I'll do whatever it takes
    To turn this around
    I know what's at stake
    I know that I've let you down
    And if you give me a chance
    Believe that I can change
    I'll keep us together whatever it takes

    She said "If we're gonna make this work
    You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
    Don't hide the broken parts that I need to see"
    She said "Like it or not it's the way it's gotta be
    You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me"

    I'll do whatever it takes
    To turn this around
    I know what's at stake
    I know that I've let you down
    And if you give me a chance
    And give me a break
    I'll keep us together, I know you deserve much better

    But remember the time I told you the way that I felt
    That I'd be lost without you and never find myself
    Let's hold onto each other above everything else
    Start over, start over
