Friends we've been for so long
Now true colors are showing
Makes me wanna cry oh yes it does
'cause I had to say goodbye

By now I should know
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

How can I adjust
To the way that things are going
It's killing me slowly
Oh I just want it to be how it used to be

'cause I wish that I could stay
But in time things must change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

You cannot hide the way you feel inside I realize
Your actions speak much louder than words
So tell me why oh

By now I should know that
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

By now I should know
That in time things must change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

By now by now I should know
That in time things must grow
And I had to leave you behind
So why do I feel so sad
If it couldn't be that bad
Tell me why

By now I should know
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

(Ad-lib to end)

    I feel sad cause my husband/son/parents/siblins not happy with me. I'm unhappy at work. Unhappy with myself. Someday i don't feel like getting out of bed. Want to stay strong and not showing any tears.

    To me it means that the love was good while it lasted, but it's time to grow and move on because people are only in ours lives for a reason, season or maybe a lifetime:)
