How Long Can You Break Someone's Heart A Little More Every Day?
I'm not sure I've ever heard a more beautiful, more heartbreaking, more heartfelt song. I'm not sure I could handle such a song, if it existed.
(I cannot find a better quality clip to embed, but if you were to perhaps google "Lex Land My Fault Your Mistake" you could probably find a link to DL a perfect quality copy as link #5, which is ridiculous. List a decent copy of this song on Bandcamp or Soundcloud or Youtube already.)
Lex Land: My Fault. Your Mistake.
I know this song is meant for the singer's parent, but I feel like I disappoint so many more people than just Mommy and Daddy Dearest.
You gave me good steps to follow
And I wish I could fill your shoes.
I wish the apple fell closer to the tree.
You gave me a branch to perch on
But it's time for me to take control.
This isn't about you, just gotta try life on my own.
And when I see fathers proud and smiling
I choke from shame and grief,
And only wish I could be a source for your relief.
We've both done each other so much wrong.
I've made mistakes too big to fix.
And maybe regardless of what I want,
We just don't mix.
And if you knew about my songs
Maybe this would mean something to you.
The only thing I care about,
The only thing that I wanna do,
The only thing that sets me apart,
The only thing that makes me me...
Slowly spelling out my heart,
For everyone to read.
And I'm sorry that I hurt you,
And I'm sorry that I let you hurt me,
But your little girl
Is gonna change the world.
