I remember when I saw you there
What did you see in me? Tell me
Let all the people stop and stare
You were the only one that I could see

Time comes and time goes by
We loved, we laughed, I failed, you tried
And now I understand why
I have to be the one to blame

Ten years down the line I never meant to waste your time
So glad you never threw in the towel on you and me
You showed me unconditional love, you even gave me the one
And baby, now that we're done, I'm sorry

See I was standing up with things to say
So I had to decide
For me it was either you or them
And I was running out of precious time

You see, I had to see the world
I knew it meant losing you, my girl
Since I lost it all today
These simple words to you I'd say

We should have given up at least a thousand times
So girl, I wouldn't be surprised if you wrote me off, no
You see I know that I put my friends before you
And I constantly ignored who was in my corner
Now, I apologize

Ten years down the line, I never meant to waste your time
So glad you never threw in the towel on you and me
You showed me unconditional love, you even gave me the one
And baby, now that we're done, I'm sorry

Don't you now that
You should have given up at least one thousand times
But, girl, why would I be surprised, why would it shock me?
When you write me off but you can't

Can't you see I, I put my band, I put my band
Wow, I ignored you
Then in return, you were there for me
And I, I apologize

Ten years down the line, I never meant to waste your time
So glad you never through in the towel on you and me
You showed me unconditional love, you even gave me the one
And baby, now that we're done, I'm sorry

I'm sorry
