Shindig — Here I Am lyrics

I never thought I'd see the day
When you would up and walk away from me. But now
It hits me just like a slap to the face.
I draw a blank, with nothing I can say to make you stay.

I'm trying hard to understand.
If you want me, here I am.
This is just as hard as I thought that it would be.
I thought this would last forever.

As you speak I can see the truth in your eyes.
Until now, I never realized that you were untrue.
And to think that all this time I was ashamed,
I thought that I should take the blame for everything.

I'm trying hard to understand. If you want me, here I am.
This is not as hard as I thought that it would be
Once I looked around to see what was left.
But to no avail, I found that it was gone.
I know nothing lasts forever

It took this long to understand
That you don't want me as I am.
I could never change enough to make you mine,
But if you want me here I am.

Want me? Here I am.
