"City by a River" as written by Jim Sonefeld, Mark Bryan, Dean Felber and Darius Rucker....
Here we are
But it's not the same
Why do I always learn
The hardest way?

I bet my heart
In a losing game
A hungry man makes
An easy prey

And now I'm payin'
For the fool I've been
But that's one mistake
That's never gonna happen again

Cause every day you're gone
Another night returns
And I have to face myself
I had to live and learn
I'm gonna mend this heart
I'm not ashamed to say
I think it's time for me
To make some changes
Changes

I played around
Pushed you to far
Pulled at all the strings
Till we came apart

But walls break down
When the truth gets hard
And there's no hiding
From the pain I caused

But hold on woman
Don't go now
I'm gonna get myself together
And make it up some how

Cause every day you're gone
Another night returns
And I have to face myself
I had to live and learn
I'm gonna mend this heart
I'm not ashamed to say
I think it's time for me
To make some changes
Changes

How can I convince you baby?
I'd do anything to change your mind
So hold on woman don't go now
I'm gonna get myself together
And make it up to you somehow

Cause every day you're gone
Another night returns
And I have to face myself
I had to live and learn
I'm gonna mend this heart
I'm not ashamed to say
I think it's time for me
To make some changes
Changes
