they couldn't have told me that it would be like this...
that it could be like this for you
I wish I would have known that it could be like this...
that it would be like this on you

I know your hurting
I know your reaching out
I'm sure you wonder
what this is all about
you couldn't ?sweat for?
for whats been done to you
I'm sure you feel it
you know I feel it too

Chorus:
sometimes the hardest things in life
are the things we have to do
and even when we feel it's right
I never wanna hurt you

It's never simple
deciding what should be
theres still a vote here
when your an absentee
you could be angry
but your a bigger man
we know your'll make it
never forget to stand

(Repeat Chorus)

you've always been
you always will
you've always been a part of me
you'll always be a part of me
you'll always be a part of me
you'll always be a part of me
you've always been a part...

(Repeat Chorus X2)

    General Commentthis song means alot to me, someone I know and cared for, went away recently, and this along with a few other songs, are one of the few which helped me through the time, I'm still having a hard time dealing with it, but just listening to this, makes me think of everything I loved about them.

    General Comment1st of all here's the CORRECT lyrics:

    They couldn't have told me that it would be like this.
    that is could be like this for you
    I wish I would have known that it could be like this
    that it would be like this for you.

    I know you're hurting, I know you're reaching out
    I'm sure you wonder what this is all about
    You could be spiteful for what's been done to you
    I'm sure you feel it. You know I feel it too.

    Sometimes the hardest things in life
    are the things we have to do
    Even when we feel it's right
    I never want to hurt you

    I'ts never simple deciding what should be
    There's still a void here when you're an absentee
    You could be angry, but you're a bigger man
    We know you'll make it. Never forget to stand.

    Sometimes the hardest things in life
    are the things we have to do
    Even when we feel it's right
    I never want to hurt you

    You've always been, you always will
    You've always been a part of me
    You'll always be a part of me
    You've always been a part

    The hardest things in life are the things we have to do
    Even when we feel it's right, I never want to hurt you
    Sometimes the hardest things in life
    are the things we have to do
    Even when we feel it's right, I never want to hurt you.

    I know for a fact that this song is about replacing thier former drummer. They felt it was the right thing to do, and that it was neccesary, but it still hurt to lose part of thier band.

    General CommentA few weeks ago, my good friend/would-be (will-be? I can only hope :P) boyfriend asked me to give him some space to think. We went a weekwithout any form of communication. I thought it was gonna be longer, and was so glad when it was over. This is the song that got me through that week. Its my favorite song from LOVE. I adore it. ^^

    General CommentThis isn't a break up song... It's about a former bandmate that they kicked out.

    General Commentabout a bandmate, right?

    that doesn't mean it doesn't make sense in the breaking up scenario. let people feel what they want.
