Well it hurt enough
When you told me you were leaving
Did you have to go
And break this heart in two
By writing me a letter
I must have read a thousand times
Saying you'll be back
When I'm ready to spend
My life with you

And I'm not ready to settle down
But for you, maybe I would
But for you, maybe I could
So I find myself alone
By the beach where many nights we stood
And I think about this life
I really do live
But it's hard to change
A man like me
Who knows what he wants
And he knows what he sees


And someone like you
Will take all the love I've got to give
And I'm not ready to settle down
But for you maybe I would
But for you maybe I could


So a part of me says, boy
You're talkin' like a fool
When you've given all you've got
To give what they have
And it's hard to change
A man like me
Who knows what he wants
And he knows what he sees


But a love like this
May never come again I know
And I'm not ready to settle down
But for you maybe I would
But for you maybe I could
For you maybe, maybe, maybe I would
Maybe, maybe for you
Maybe I would
Maybe I could
