how many times will it take for me to get it right?

I was browsing Youtube looking for songs that Glee covered, and I clicked on this song called "Get It Right". It's apparently an original song from Glee (and I really don't watch that show) but I fell in LOVE with it. Here are the lyrics:
{Verse 1}
What have I done?
I wish I could run 
Away from this ship going under
Just trying to help
Hurt everyone else
Now I feel the weight of the world is
On my shoulders

{Chorus}
What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch tumbles down
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh how many times will it take for me
To get it right
To get it right

{Verse 2}
Can I start again?
With my faith shaken
'Cause I can't go back and undo this
I just have to stay
And face my mistakes
But if I get stronger and wiser
I'll get through this

{Chorus}
What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch tumbles down
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh how many times will it take for me
To get it right

{Bridge}
So I throw up my fist
Throw a punch in the air
And accept the truth that sometimes life isn't fair
Yeah I'll send up a wish
Yeah I'll send up a prayer
And finally someone will see how much I care!

{Chorus}
What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch tumbles down
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?
Oh how many times will it take for me
To get it right
To get it right

I was bawling by the time this song ended. This does kinda describe our lives sometimes doesn't it? I think so. That's a pretty "wow" song. I'm going to go write my own song now. Even though this song is kinda sad, it's inspiring too.
What's your favorite inspiring song?
And by the way, do you like this picture? I took this in my room and was kinda messing around on Picnik, and this happened. Whatdaya think?

sometimes i do not understand why you guys like me so much, but the fact that you do (and that you keep coming around) makes me happier than you can even imagine.
