lyrics

A life lived without pain
means a life lived without these lessons learned
and I wish that I could take back how I treated you,
but it’s too late.
An apology will have to do.
I’m sorry, sorry for everything that I put you through.
I hate myself for letting go of you.
It’s the one mistake I wish I never made.

I can’t do anything now to keep you off my mind.
(I need somebody else)
I think back on the way that I handled everything
and it makes me sick!
But I hope that he makes you happy.
On second thought,
I hope he slips up and he makes that same mistake that I made.
I’m holding on til’ I see this through.
I hope that you cash in my I.O.U.

I’m drowning,
drowning in this mess I made but I know that I will be strong
and I will move along,
pretending everything’s okay
and hope that we could try again someday.

Take me back! I’ll make it up to you, I swear!
Take me back! I’ll make it up to
(you) mean everything to me.
I see it now and I can blame myself,
but you should have put your foot down,
never let me walk out.

I can’t do anything now to keep you off my mind.
(I need somebody else)
I think back on the way that I handled everything
and it makes me sick!
But I hope that he makes you happy.
On second thought,
I hope he slips up and he makes that same mistake that I made.
I’m holding on til’ I see this through.
I hope that you cash in my I.O.U.
