Dear john
Right now you are probably wondering
Where I am who I'm with and why you are reading this
But before I go into...
What I'm up to let me confess
Dear sweetheart
I know about ur secret
Where you've been, who you with, I saw you out with her
And yet you always try to maintain
How I got a good thing and I can't do better
Do you remember what you told me?
Cause I remember it well (how could I forget)
Do you remember how you said no one could want me
And I said time will tell

That's why I'm so sorry
That I couldn't be there
To see the look up on your face
And I'm so sorry that it took me so long
So long to put you an your place

I'm writin you this letter
Just to let you know that
That I still love you
But I wont be comin back
You had me at hello
Now I gotta say goodbye
Cause one too many times you made me cry

Dear john
I'm hopin that this find you well...
Dear john
But you put me through a living hell
Dear john
You left me with nothin to do
Dear john
Dear john
I'm leaving you
I'm leaving you

Dear john
By now ur probably see my clothes are gone
Keys are gone and I aint lovin
So don't even bother
To call my number
Cause I got it changed
Why john
Couldn't just see
I gave my heart, gave my time
And I got nothin
So it shouldn't be surprising
This letter I'm writin
That you there by yourself
Do you remember what you told me?
Cause I remember it well (how could I forget)
Do you remember how you said no one would want me
And I said time will tell

That's why I'm so sorry
That I couldn't be there
To see the look up on your face
And I'm so sorry that it took me so long
So long to put you an your place

I'm writin you this letter
Just to let you know that
That I still love you
But I wont be comin back
You had me at hello
Now I gotta say goodbye
Cause one too many times you made me cry

Dear john
I'm hopin that this find you well
Dear john
But you put me through a living hell
Dear john
You left me with nothin to do
Dear john
Dear john
I'm leaving you

But I can end this with those saying
Thank you for everything you put me through
I've come so far alone
I'm leaving I'm leaving I'm leaving
I'm movin on
And now I'm so much wiser
Cause the pain that you gave me
Never ever put me down
Ur only made me strong
I'm leavin I'm leavin I'm leavin
John, I'm gone

I'm writin you this letter
Just to let you know that
That I still love you
But I wont be comin back
You had me at hello
Now I gotta say goodbye
Cause one too many times you made me cry

Dear john
I'm hopin that this find you well
Dear john
But you put me through a livin hell
Dear john
You left me with nothin to do
Dear john
Dear john
I'm leaving you
