  • It's never enough to say I'm sorry
    It's never enough to say I care
    But I'm caught between what you wanted from me
    And knowing that if I give that to you
    I might just disappear

    Nobody wins when everyone's losing

    It's like one step forward and two steps back
    No matter what I do you're always mad
    And I, I can't change your mind
    I know it's like trying to turn around on a one way street
    I can't give you what you want
    And it's killing me
    And I, I'm starting to see
    Maybe we're not meant to be

    It's never enough to say I love you
    No, it's never enough to say I try
    It's hard to believe
    That there's no way out for you and me
    And it seems to be the story of our lives

    Nobody wins when everyone's losing

    It's like one step forward and two steps back
    No matter what I do you're always mad
    And I, I can't change your mind
    I know it's like trying to turn around on a one way street
    I can't give you what you want
    And it's killing me
    And I, I'm starting to see
    Maybe we're not meant to be

    There's still time to turn this around
    You could build this up instead of tearing it down
    But I keep thinking
    Maybe it's too late

    It's like one step forward and two steps back
    No matter what I do you're always mad
    And I, I can't change your mind
    I know it's like trying to turn around on a one way street
    I can't give you what you want
    And it's killing me
    And I, I'm starting to see
    Maybe we're not meant to be

    It's like one step forward and two steps back
    No matter what I do you're always mad
    And I, baby I'm sorry to see
    Maybe we're not meant to be Writer/s: DAVID BRENNER, DAVID J. BRENNER, DEAN BACK, DEAN HENNING BACK, KARA DIOGUARDI, TYLER CONNOLLY, TYLER PATRICK CONNOLLY
