I think it’s time that I be honestShould’ve told you not to goThought I knew just what I wantedI didn’t know myself at all
You’re with somebody I can’t be, yeahBut I can tell that you’re happy
It’s time for me to finally meet somebody newTake her to all the places that I took us toAnd she might help me forget,But loving her is something I could never doBecause I hadBecause I had you
Hey, remember when I told youThat you and I, we’d go down in history together, yeahAnd does your sister ask about me?You and I, what we had, is it gone forever?
You’re with somebody I can’t beBut I can tell that you’re happy
It’s time for me to finally meet somebody newTake her to all the places that I took us toAnd she might help me forgetBut loving her is something I could never doBecause I hadBecause I had you
There’s nothin’, ohThere’s nothin’ left to loseBecause I had you, babeThere’s nothin’, yeahNothin’ that I could doI wish I had you
But I think it’s time I finally found somebody newAnd tell myself that she’s the one to get me throughAnd she might help me forgetBut loving her is something I just couldn’t doBecause I had you
