Fallen lyrics

Heaven bend to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
THe past could be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden
Time always reveals
In the lonely light of morning
In the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I've held so dear.

I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

Heaven bend to take my hand
Nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh they turn their heads embarassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step
One slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

    I loved the song the first time i heard it in 2004 and i can't stop crying when i hear it.
    It brings sad and bliss at the same time to me.

    I was really down Christmas morning then this song came on the tv while opening our gifts.It brought back the tears from a drama filled last nite,so I went right to the internet to listen and get the lyrics.For me its not about and boy girl relationship ,it is a neighbour\girlfriend; a friend I thought I had. But it turned out I became the scapegoat for her problems and she twisted all my words around trying to make me feel bad about myself.Well the friendship is broken now and I ll never go back.She saids she never judges others; thats what she did to me.For me right now it hurts so bad,she will never know; in the crack of dawn I lay awake and think of what she put me through and I cry ....its a hurten song but BEAUTIFUL still to me.PEACE ON EARTH

    I listen to sarah to put me on the right track when life is spinning out of control. She soothes and calms and all her work is a breather from todays frenetic life.

    Is this song about infidelity? Hers or his? Or is it about love in general and feeling suffocated?

    I love this song. It is so beautiful and really showcases Sarah's voice. The lyrics are haunting and lovely and I seriously play it on repeat for 8-10 times in a row. - So lovely!
