I'm not a perfect person,

There's many things I wish I didn't do

But I continue learning,

I never meant to do those things to you

And so I have to say before I go

That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me to change who I used to be

A reason to start over new, and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you

It's something I must live with every day

All the pain I put you through

I wish that I could take it all away

And be the one who catches all your tears

That's why I need you to hear

I've found a reason to show a side of me you didn't know

A reason for all that I do, and the reason is you
