  • Heaven bend to take my hand and lead me through the fire
    Be the long awaited answer to a long and painful fight
    Truth be told I tried my best
    But somewhere along the way, I got caught up in all there was to offer
    But the cost was so much more than I could bear

    Though I've tried,

    (Chorus)
    I've fallen
    I have sunk so low
    I messed up
    Better I should know
    So don't come 'round here and
    Tell me I told you so

    We all begin with good intent
    When love was raw and young
    We believe that we can change ourselves
    The past can be undone
    But we carry on our back the burdens time always reveals
    In the lonely light of morning
    In the wound that would not heal
    It's the bitter taste of losing everything
    I've held so dear

    [Chorus]

    Oh,

    Heaven bend to take my hand
    I've nowhere left to turn
    I'm lost to those I thought were friends
    To everyone I know
    Oh they turn their heads, embarrassed
    Pretend that they don't see
    That it's one miss step, one slip, before you know it
    And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

    Though I've tried,

    [Chorus]

    Oh,
    I've messed up
    Better I should know
    Don't come 'round here and
    Tell me I told you so
