Sorry, I'm so late but I've been out a-walkin'
Trying to find a way to tell you but I think you already know
I'd never want to hurt you 'cause darling, I still love you
But things aren't the way they use to be, it's time for letting go.

I wasn't out there lookin' but a month ago last Sunday
I met someone just like you in line at the groery store
We've been spendng time together, yes, she knows all about you
The truth is, she can give me what you can't anymore.

I know I promised you forever
I never thought I'd see this day
If only I could write the pages
Our story wouldn't end this way.

I feel so much better knowing we could have this moment
But it looks like it may rain soon and it's getting kind of late
Hon, I always bring you roses, every time I've come to visit
The caretakers waiting, he want to close the gate.

I know I promised you forever
I never thought I'd see this day
If only I could write the pages
Our story wouldn't end this way.

It wouldn' end this way...
