I saw it in her eyes
When I was sayin' goodbye
That girl, she ain't gonna be alright
Cause I could tell
She'd be goin' through a living hell
And I, I wouldn't be there by her side
And Lord, I felt so bad
As I sat and watched her cry
Thinkin' I was movin' on
And she was barely gettin' by

Look at what I've done to her
Look at how I've made her feel
I gave back her heart
The broken part
She got the raw end of the deal
And look at what it's done to me
You gotta know it tears me up
I gave it everything I had
And Lord, it just wasn't enough
And hurtin' like this seems so wrong
Yeah, look at what I've done to her
Now she's alone

I saw her out last night
And she was havin' a good time
That girl, it looks like she's doin' fine
But then I saw a man
Walk up and take her by the hand
And I..
Oh God, I almost died
And then it hit me
She didn't really need me
I just sat there for awhile
Until I finally smiled

Yeah look at what I've done to her
Look at how I've made her feel
She's found somebody new
And look who took the time to heal
And look at what it's done to me
God, I know it tears me up
To have walked away from the love we made
And just leave it in a cloud of dust
And now it's got me thinkin', maybe I was wrong
After all the things I've done to her
Now she's strong

I walked up and said, "Hello"
She said, "It's good to see ya
But hey, I gotta go"

Yeah look at what I've done to her
Look at how I made her feel
She's standin' tall, she's got it all
Got the world at her heels
And look at what it's done to me
Yeah look at how it makes me hurt
If I could go back now
I swear, somehow
I'd find a way to make it work
Ain't life funny?
Now I'm the one alone
Yeah look at what I've done to me
She's gone

    General CommentHow I am right now. Me and my long time g/f broke up about a month and a half ago, she's moved on and found somebody else that she's happy with, and I'm as alone as ever. I've been torn between past relationships, new relationships, and sudden impulses. I still can't get over how it ended between us... I think almost everybody can relate to this song.

    General CommentThis song is exactly how my most meaningful relationship turned out. First, her world fell apart. Then she got hers together and mine fell apart. The way the song ends gives me a chill every time. The way he says...She's gone.

    General CommentThis song is excellent! Everytime I hear it, I want to cry! It reminds me so much of the guy I like! The first verse is pretty much exactly what happened! I told him to listen to it, and he also thought the same thing!

    It's a heartbreaking song, but wonderful!

    General Commentwhen I hear this song I think of a friend kind of like ggroessel. He had a woman he was so in love with and they broke up it was harder on her then him. She found someone else now is engaged and he would walk a thousand miles to get her back. He hates the song cause its too much but its how he feels...
