Show me how to make it right
Or should I just stay out of sight
I said too much already, nothing left to say
All my good intentions went astray

I was only trying to help
I wasn't acting selfishly
I know you'd do the same for me
I didn't know the truth would hurt till I saw you crying
I was only trying to help

Love gone wrong, falling apart
When I said what's in my heart
I learned the truth about honesty
It isn't always kind
You gotta think before you say what's on your mind

I was only trying to help
I wasn't acting selfishly
I know you'd do the same for me
I didn't know the truth would hurt till I saw you crying
I was only trying

I was only trying to help
I wasn't acting selfishly
I know you'd do the same for me
I didn't know the truth would hurt till I saw you crying
I was only trying to help

I was only trying to help
