Song - I Have Failed Again

I Have Failed Again

I just want to give up
Admit that I have failed again
I want to fess-up
That I'm the one who let this happen.

When it all just seems to go wrong
And it's somehow my fault anyway
I can't pretend to be that strong
When I can't even make it through the day.

Oh, why does it have to be me?
Who always has their world crashing down-around
Oh, why can't fate just let me be?
I hide my heart where it can't be found.

Oh, can't this happen to someone else?
Why is it my life that has to take the hit?
Oh, why do I do this to myself?
And why do I always put up with it?

I'm just waiting for the sky to fall
Hear the door slam on my ex-best friend
And now that I have lost it all
I'm here alone waiting for the end -

Of a life that's become just another disaster
Now no more lies and no more laughter
And now no more reason to exist
And now another piece of me that I'll miss.

Oh, why does it have to be me?
Who always has their world crashing down-around
Oh, why can't fate just let me be?
I hide my heart where it can't be found.

Oh, can't this happen to someone else?
Why is it my life that has to take the hit?
Oh, why do I do this to myself?
And why do I always put up with it?

Ah, Jade, how'd you manage to sum up the way I've been feeling lately? This was hauntingly beautiful. Thanks for posting it.

Love forever,
Carla
Thankyou Carla Sweety. I actually wrote this song in less than an hour because of the terrible week I've been having (not eating enough, hardly any sleep, family fueds, guilt trips, a now empty ipod and my rain-soaked room). But I did feel better when I wrote this.
