"What Hurts The Most" as written by and Carsten/biker Schack....
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, listen

Boy, it's been a long time
Since the last time I saw you
Feels like nothin' changed
Since we've been together
I must admit that I go crazy 'bout you

And I can see it in your eyes
That there's somethin' you want to say to me
'Cause usually right now
You'd be holdin' on to me
But instead you're tellin' me

That things have changed, they're not the same
And recently you found someone that you
Decided to dedicate your whole life to
And what we had has got to be through

And baby, what hurts the most is letting go
I just want you to know that I love you so
I know things are different now
You've gone and settled down
And I thought for sure you'd always wait for me

I'll tell you what hurts the most is I should have took the chance
Boy when you came to me and offered me your hand
Silly of me, I thought, I'd always have your heart
I had the chance to have all the love, oh, how I'm missing you now

I hate that there is someone new
Comin' in and takin' my place
Doin' the things that we used to do
And makin' love to you

And oh, what am I supposed to do?
It's killin' me 'cause I want you
And you should have known my love was true
And there's no one else in this world for me but you

But things have changed, they're not the same
And recently you found someone that you
Decided to dedicate your whole life to
And what we had has got to be through

Baby, what hurts the most is letting go
I just want you to know that I love you so
I know things are different now
You've gone and settled down
I thought for sure you'd always wait for me

I'll tell you what hurts the most is I should have took the chance
Boy when you came to me and offered me your hand
Silly of me, I thought, I'd always have your heart
I had the chance to have all your love, oh, how I'm missing you now

I know that I'm the one to blame for losing you, oh yeah
I really, really wish that I could be happy for you
There's just one thing I need you to do

Don't you touch her like you used to touch me
Don't you love her like you really needed me
Don't you love her like you used to love me

Baby, what hurts the most is letting go
I just want you to know that I love you so
I know things are different now
You've gone and settled down
I thought for sure you'd always wait me

I'll tell you what hurts the most is I should have took the chance
Boy when you came to me and offered me your hand
Silly of me, I thought, I'd always have your heart
I had the chance to have all your love, oh, how I'm missing you now

What hurts the most is letting go
(It makes me feel so tired)
Just to let you know
(Just to let you know)
I love you so
(I love you so)

What hurts the most
(What hurts the most)
Is letting go
(I'm tryin' to let you go)
Just to let you know
(Oh but I gotta let you know)
I love you so, love you so

What hurts the most, hurts the most

    General Commentlike they said it does bring back memories. Having an ex and exposing himself with his new girlfriend is horrific and painful. The good lesson out of this is treasure what u have and dont let go if it once left. Love is holding on to something till u cnat no more. Still wear ur heart on ur sleeve and dont let go! live every minute of ur relationship to the fullest. Letting go does hurt but if that other person is happy then lose the grip but still keep a place for him in ur heart.

    General CommentD I believe she is saying how she may have taken for granted the fact that her and this guy had a lot of love to offer her and now that she sees him with another the memories start to come and she hates the fact that she could have been in the position of the new girl but she is forced to let go because he has moved onto to someone new" don't you touch her like you ise to touch me, don't you love her like you really need me, and what hurts the most is letting go".
