"Breakin' Up" as written by and John William Stevenson....
What if I we could just talk it over
If only we could somehow find a way
Maybe we can just start all over
If only we weren't breakin' up today

Think about the good times, forget about the bad
Think about the love we tried to make and what we had
I remember the love and lies and promises
I remember everything, I remember way too much

What if I we could just talk it over
If only we could somehow find a way
Maybe we could just start all over
If only we weren't breakin' up today

Today we pull ourselves together, rip ourselves apart
So many lies and ties to sever, we don't know where to start
It's not worth us trying to save it and it never was
There's no way we can make it work when we couldn't even let it work

I though that I could move on to someone new
But I've never loved or hated anyone but you
What if I'd been good to you? What if I'd been true to you?
What if we weren't breakin' up today?

Today we pull ourselves together, rip ourselves apart
So many lies and ties to sever, we don't know where to start

What if I we could just talk it over
If only we could somehow find a way
Maybe we can just start all over
If only we weren't breakin' up today

If only we weren't breakin' up today
If only we weren't breakin' up today
