When you came by this morning,
Boy, you caught me off guard,
Who would have thought it would be you
When I opened the door!
And it made me realize, yes, I still think of you
Yes, I still love you man, yes I'm still missing you!
Yeah, I almost forgot to say I love
Thinking about how it was before.
We got to talking, started remembering
All the times we had, trying to get them back.
Then you ask if I could take you back.

Chorus:
Oh, I can forgive,
But I can't forget all the fights that we had,
I can forgive,
But I won't forget the way that you hurt me like that!
I'll never forgive you for cheating, lying and leaving,
Treating me so bad!
I'll always love you, but I can't forget,
So I don't want you back!

Call me selfish, call me scared,
But I'mma call it common sense,
Cause my heart ain't prepared
To try to do this all again!
Cause I can't let you go, no!
I can't take the pain, no!
I can't be with you, no,
The love will turn in hate!
Hate to love you like I do,
Knowing that I'm not over you,
So don't you make a smile,
Don't try to bring it back
To the time we had cause I'm done with that.
Don't ask again, if I'mma take you back, no, no!

Chorus:
Oh, I can forgive,
But I can't forget all the fights that we had,
I can forgive,
But I won't forget the way that you hurt me like that!
I'll never forgive you for cheating, lying and leaving,
Treating me so bad!
I'll always love you, but I can't forget,
So I don't want you back!

Cause I've been through this before
And I know exactly where it goes,
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
I don't like where it leads,
So I think I'm taking other road, oh, oh.
You came back, told me I I'll have regrets,
But at least I know my heart is safe!
So let's end this, before another mistake is made!

Chorus: (x2)
Oh, I can forgive,
But I can't forget all the fights that we had,
I can forgive,
But I won't forget the way that you hurt me like that!
I'll never forgive you for cheating, lying and leaving,
Treating me so bad!
I'll always love you, but I can't forget,
So I don't want you back
