I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house,
That don't bother me,
I can take a few tears now and then and just let 'em out
I'm not afraid to cry,
Every once in a while,
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me,
There are days every now and again I pretend I'm ok,
But that's not what gets me,

What hurts the most,
Was being so close,
And having so much to say,
And watching you walk away,
And never knowing what could have been,
And not seeing that loving you,
Is what I was trying to do

It's hard to deal with the pain of losing you
Every where I go,
But I'm doin' it,
It's hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I'm alone,
Still harder,
Getting up getting dressed, livin' with this regret
But I know if I could do it over,
I would trade, give away SHOW the words that I saved in my heart that I left unspoken,

What hurts the most,
Was being so close,
And having so much to say,
And watching you walk away,
And never knowing what could have been ,
And not seeing that loving you,
Is what I was trying to do

What hurts the most,
Was being so close,
And having so much to say,
And watching you walk away,
And never knowing what could have been,
And not seeing that loving you,
Is what I was trying to do
Not seeing that loving you
That's what I was trying to do
