I’m sorry for all the pain I caused,
I didn’t mean for it to happen this way,
I wanted to be with you forever and a day,
Something about you changed, everything paused.
There was something about you,
Something that was special about you to me,
I just want you to understand and see,
I can’t put my finger on it, but it was there, at least it used to.
I understand that you hate me,
I know I probably broke your heart,
I guess we were slowly drifting apart,
I did not want this to be.
You say that you told me so,
Having you say that only made me cry,
It broke my heart, when I said goodbye,
I wish this wasn’t such a hard blow.
I drank a 2liter bottle of sierra mist that night,
I can’t get over it,
I guess you think my words are empty as you sit,
I wish I could, but I can’t make this right.
I hope you and Sara get to go back out,
I know she would be able to make you happy,
You wanted me, like her, to be,
You and her, going back out, I don’t have a doubt.
At least if you two are together,
She won’t have to be tested to find out if she needs to be put on medication,
You won’t have to be in a bunch of frustration,
You can have a lot of love to gather.
If you two don’t work out,
There is always other,
Trust me there is another,
If I’m wrong or right, there is no need to shout.
Maybe doing what I did was wrong,
Maybe doing what I did was right,
I suppose the answer is in the light,
We both just have to stay strong.
I still love you,
Just the main thing I loved is gone,
I can’t figure it out, so don’t be withdrawn,
We just weren’t meant to be, I guess it’s true.
Please try to understand,
I don’t want to cause any more pain,
Everything I have is gone, right down the drain,
I just wish it’s not the same for you, please stay strong and stand.
Please stay strong for your own sake,
To this world you do belong,
This goodbye, I don’t want you or your heart to ache.
The only thing left to say is…
Even though I cry,
It’s time for us to fly,
The only thing left to say is…
