lyrics

I somehow played the fool
it's all i ever do
and reminds me how i've kept from loving you
if there was another chance
i'd take no second glance
i might not ever fall into a trance
i might not lose the nerve to pick you up
i might just find the words that mean enough
and if i can't, don't even try to call my bluff
just hold for life and see that i will make it up

so the song i sing to you is no better than the news
that these words are hanging on like bitter fruit
and if karma makes the rules
then you won't need any proof
just hold for life and see that i will make it through
more or less there's nothing else that i could do
if i stumble when i step i'll never move
forget the mess and do my best to promise you
i'll make it up to you

and if you tell me, i'll make it up
and if it hurts me, i'll make it up
but if my heart beats, i'll make it up
and if you can't see through the disguise i will try
i will try to make it up

too far
too soon
so long
so few
of these words i have told you
keeps me falling for you
it makes no sense for me to fall apart
every time i do the time it gets so hard
i'd rather climb and earn the right back to the start
and make it up to you

and if you want me, i'll make it up
and if yr heart beats, i'll make it up
and if you can't see, i'll make it up
you'll see i'm trying to make it up
and if you tell me, i'll make it up
and if it hurts me, i'll make it up
and if my heart bleeds, i'll make it up
i've got a feeling i'll make it up
when there's nothing i'll make it up
show ya something, i'll make it up
something for nothing is all i got
and it's the one thing that won't let me stop
i'll make it up
