Hey,
You remember how it used to be?
Just you and me
On the phone for hours on end
Many nights we'd spend
Just talkin’ about life
How we'd be together forever
Get married, grow old
Watch our kids ride their bikes
You remember what you said to me?
You'd never leave
Well, look what words can do
Either bring you up,
Or leave you to grieve
I think I'll take the latter
‘Cause now it doesn't matter
How many months has it been?
Will we ever speak again?

[Chorus]
Oh, but that's okay
I am still trying to forgive
Despite the fact
I haven't been able to live
Oh, but that's okay
'cause I know one day
You're going to need me
Don't worry, I won't leave
Trust me, like I trusted you
I will keep my word,
Even though I can't say
The same for you
Oh, but that's okay
I'm living for me anyway,
You'll be knockin' on my door
One of these days
Oh, but that's okay
I'll let you in, but not today

I've thought a lot about this
What you put me through
But my reasons continue to fail,
To try and hate you
But if only you knew,
If only, if only. . .
I knew something was wrong
When I heard a voice tell me
"He’s no good, he’s no help”
You kept hurting yourself
While I struggled to bring you up
Now I pay for it?
I’m left with an empty cup
You just don't understand
All that I went through
Sacrificed all of me
For you, all for you,
So many lonely nights I spent
Wondering if we'd be
Together again
Why can't I forget?
Why can't I just be?
Get my thoughts off of you
Let my mind break free

[Chorus]
Oh, but that's okay
I am still trying to forgive
Despite the fact
I haven't been able to live
Oh, but that's okay
'cause I know one day
You're going to need me
Don't worry, I won't leave
Trust me, like I trusted you
I will keep my word,
Even though I can't say
The same for you
Oh, but that's okay
I'm living for me anyway,
You'll be knockin' on my door
One of these days
Oh, but that's okay
I'll let you in, but not today

But how are you doing?
Are you fine these days?
How have you been?
You been okay?
I've prayed for you
Many nights and many days
Remember what I told you?
I’d still love you
Even if you didn't stay. . .
I wish you were the same way…
Maybe you’ll change
One of these days
I doubt it,
But I can still pray
You’ll be different
Than the first day
Change is good
And I think you could
One of these days
If you wanted to
But this part of my life
Is over and through
So good luck
With everything from now on
And maybe one day
You’ll cry as you
Hear this song
