I'm tired.
I'm tired of arguing and yelling every time you come home.
I'm tired of getting my hopes up, and then you come by and knock them down.
I'm scared I'll let you down.
I'm scared of packing up and moving out.
I'm scared some guy will break my heart and I'll have no one to turn to.
I'm worried that i'm going to fail you as a daughter.
I'm worried I'm going to lose my way and never find the right path.
I'm worried you will never trust or love me again.
I'm sorry for my mistakes.
I'm sorry for letting you down and lying to you.
I know what I did was wrong, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
I'm ready to start over.
I'm ready to begin a new life; whatever's out there, I know i can handle it with you by my side.
I'm tired of being tired of everything.
I'm ready for something new.
I'm ready for you to help my along my way.
