Never make it up to you

This phone call before Christmas changed my life

It gave me purpose, made me strong

Something to live for and to come alive

Gave me a place, where I’d belong

 

And so I left my old life way behind

At the beginning, it was hard

You made it easy, ‘cause I’d always find

A helping hand, right from the start

 

You took me in and you cared for me

I could never thank you more

And now, things are, as they’re supposed to be

So much, much different than before

 

And I can never make it up to you

You know me as I was before

I can never make up to you

And there is nothing I want more

 

You stood by me, when I was down and out,

You stood by me, when I was ill,

When all was lost and there seemed no way out

I felt you, strong, behind me still

 

When I came back, there was this deep felt warmth,

The open heart, the open mind

New people, friends, welcome with open arms,

The best surroundings, you could find

 

You took me in and you cared for me

I could never thank you more

And now, things are, as they’re supposed to be

So much, much different than before

 

And I can never make it up to you

You know me as I was before

I can never make up to you

And there is nothing I want more

 

We knew, to make this new way possible, then

It would require a slower pace

For things to fall back into place again

You gave me time, you gave me space

 

Now I’m so sad, I disappointed you

I am sorry, I let you down

These expectations, all to live up to

I thought, I’d sooner come around

 

It seems, that there is no more time to show

You the efficient, stronger me

To prove you right and to make sure, you know

I’m just the way, I used to be.

 

You took me in and you cared for me

I could never thank you more

I thought me stronger, than I seem to be,

So much, much different than before

 

And I can never make it up to you

You know me as I was before

I can never make up to you

And there is nothing I want more
