Verse 1

For a long while, I had wanted to

Go back in time and be there for you.

Hold your hand tightly and take all your pain away,

By reassuring you that you'll find a new day.

Chorus

But now I can't

Because I set your world on fire

And watched it burn to the ground.

You fought so hard and got so far,

And I only let you down.

And I'm sorry.

Verse 2

I had a dream, where you held me tight,

Reminded me how I'd seen dark nights.

You told me, "If a thirteen year old can fight back,

When she's scared and alone and sees the world in black,

Chorus

You can't give up.

So what you set your world on fire

And watched it burn to the ground?

You'll fight so hard and get so far,

Lady, don't you let me down.

Show you're sorry."

Bridge

I'll try to be as strong as I can be,

But will you ever forgive me?

"Yes, I do,

Because when I look at you,

I know I pushed through the pain

And learnt to trust once again."

Chorus

But what's the point?

Because I set your world on fire

And watched it burn to the ground.

You fought so hard and got so far,

And I only let you down.

And I'm sorry.
