I used to love you but you changed now
I see us in a different light when
I look into your eyes I can see it isn't right
If I stayed, cause to me I feel we grew apart
We're looking for solutions but we're walking in the dark
In the rain, I used to be the one that took the pain away
Now I'm saying all the words I thought I'd never say
We tried hard but it's like we gotta wake up
Cause I can feel it when we touch, it ain't the same love

And I'm aware of all the history we made
But we shouldn't be afraid to admit it's time to fade out
I wish I could kiss the tears on your face
But the feelings ain't the same, I'd be wrong if I stayed around
So believe me when I say this wasn't planned
Just try to understand that I care enough to let you go
I know you left your heart in my hands
But you could have it back now, it's yours

I'm sorry that I can't stay, I'm sorry but I won't
I'm lying to myself and to you if I do
I'm sorry that I can't be the one to keep your heart
'Cause when I hold you close I feel far apart

I'm sorry that I can't stay, I'm sorry but I won't
I'm lying to myself and to you if I do
I'm sorry that I can't be the one to keep you safe
But it'll hurt us both if I stayed

I trust 'em when they say "Hey, don't try to fix it if it's broken"
Our future was so clear now it's clearly out of focus
Out of frame, I'm looking at you different
'Cause you wrote the answers on the mirror with your lipstick
Even if I played pretend and kept goin' on
I could never love you right 'cause inside I know it's wrong
You deserve somebody that'll mean it when they hold you
On a different level now, I guess I miss the old you

And I'm aware of all the history we made
But we shouldn't be afraid to admit it's time to fade out
I wish I could kiss the tears on your face
But the feelings ain't the same, I'd be wrong if I stayed around
So believe me when I say this wasn't planned
Just try to understand that I care enough to let you go
I know you left your heart in my hands
But you could have it back now, it's yours

I'm sorry that I can't stay, I'm sorry but I won't
I'm lying to myself and to you if I do
I'm sorry that I can't be the one to keep your heart
'Cause when I hold you close I feel far apart

I'm sorry that I can't stay, I'm sorry but I won't
I'm lying to myself and to you if I do
I'm sorry that I can't be the one to keep you safe
But it'll hurt us both if I stayed
