The only version of this song I know is the one from McLachlan's Live Version EP, so it 
may differ ever, ever so slightly in lyrics. Just a disclaimer!

  Am
Heaven bent to take my hand
      F                  C
and lead me through the fire -
        G            Am
be the long-awaited answer
      F                 C       G
to a long and painful fight.
 Am
Truth be told, I tried my best,
     F                   C
but somewhere along the way
  Am                C                 F
I got caught up in all there was to offer,
         Am                C                 F
and the price was so much more than I could bear.

                                   C
Though I've tried, I've fallen. I have
  G        Dm    F
sunk so low. I messed up -
  C     G
better, I should know.
Dm            F
   So don't come 'round here
     C            G      Dm
and tell me, "I told you so."

    Am
We all begin with good intent:
 F                 C
love was raw and young.
       G                   Am
We believed that we could change ourselves,
     F                C
the past could be undone.
 G      Am
But we carry on our backs the burden
 F              C
time always reveals
         G               Am
in the lonely light of morning,
         Dm                  F
in the wound that would not heal.
          Dm           F              C
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
           G       Dm
that I've held so dear.

                C
I've fallen. I have
  G        Dm    F
sunk so low. I messed up -
  C     G
better, I should know.
Dm            F
   So don't come 'round here
     C            G      Dm
and tell me, "I told you so."

  Am
Heaven, bend to take my hand:
 F               C
nowhere left to turn.
     G                Am
I'm lost to those I thought were friends,
    F          C
to everyone I know.
G         Am
Oh, they turn their heads, embarassed,
     F             C
pretend that they don't see.
         Am
But it's one missed step,
 C                    F
one slip before you know it.
           Am             C            F
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed.

                                   C
Though I've tried, I've fallen. I have
  G        Dm    F
sunk so low. I messed up -
  C     G
better, I should know.
Dm            F
   So don't come 'round here
     C            G      Dm
and tell me, "I told you so."
