Let Me Try Again
Jandek

I know I've been a failure to you
Even after all the things for me you do
All the gifts that you've given
And all the times that I've striven
To run away and hide in my fault
Please, please, please let me try again
And when I fall I'll get me up
The free fall of the chasm is bounded by your loving arms
And I don't think I can do it without you
Love me, the failure on my knees
Forgive this frail body
All the weakness that I know
I'm not asking for anything
How could you give me more
You know I'm back to you every chance I get
When the frenetic turmoil subsides
And I stop and I see you
In all the glory that you are
I know I've been a failure to you
Even after all the things for me you do
And all the gifts that you've given
