Sacrifices never made, desperate prayers I left unprayed
Forgiveness not asked for, love not confessed
Compromises all refused, coat of armor not removed
Everything guarded till nothing was left
But the image of a face I can?t forget
The bitter, lasting taste of my regret

What I wouldn?t give to be younger and wiser
What I wouldn?t give to be yours once more
What I wouldn?t give to be less of a miser
And give you what I wouldn?t give before

All the lines I wouldn?t cross, battles won while love was lost
I built my fortress on blood, sweat, and fears
Terrified you?d run away, I made sure you couldn?t stay
I packed all your bags, I cried all your tears
I locked the door behind you and I knew
I?d give anything to be with you


My situation?s tragic
My condition is so sad
What I wouldn?t give you
Cost me all that I had
