"No one wins them all, and your failures when they happen, are just part of your growth. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your time will come"

When I left you standing alone at the curb last night,
I was too exhausted, too tired to fight
Unable to make the sacrifices you want me to make
I've given you everything, there's nothing left to take
My heart is in shambles, I'm sorry that I'm young
I tried to write a chorus, but the song's already been sung
Sung by me, every time I forgive-- which is a multitude of times
I give you the truth and you just give me lies

So I got in my car, and I drove away
Tired of waiting for what you won't say
I thought it was over, all unsaid and done
But I can't help thinking that maybe you're the one
Maybe that's a reach, but I never look before I leap
And my unrequited love is the reason I can't sleep

But for now my heart is racing, my nails are painted red
Anger beats inside of me for the words I left unsaid
And I'll burn this bridge faster than you can say her name
My heart may be torn but our potential's up in flames
For my jealousy is greed; cause you were never mine
One day I'll be your everything, but you'll just be this line
