Dolly Parton – Time And Tears lyrics

I didn't cry all of these tears just to have you show up here again
I didn't lie awake all these nights to have you come walking back in
I didn't change my whole life around, not to mention my dreams and my plans
To have you come back with your same ol' act thinking that I'll understand

Time and tears have mended the pain
Healed all the hurt and changed everything
Time and tears I'm happy to say
Time and tears have washed it away
Time and tears have washed you away

I didn't think that I would survive the day that you walked out on me
I truly was more dead than alive
