This just might be the hardest thing I ever had to do
I never thought I'd see the day I'd be living without you
Now I can't even look you in the eye
'Cause I know what it does when I see you cry
And that's not what I wanna do

So here's my dear John, don't waste your time
When you respond I'll be gone
Before I change my mind
I'll just stop now and say goodbye

Now I realized all the promises I've made to you through the years
And all the times you forgave me even when I caused you tears
But I just can't do it can't hurt you again
You might say that I'm less than a man
But this is what I need to do

So here's my dear John, don't waste your time
When you respond I'll be gone
Before I change my mind
I'll just stop now and say goodbye

Now I know you probably readin' this sayin' this ain't happenin'
Maybe one day we'll start all over and we can try again
But right now I just gotta go, I'm not comin' back until I'm sure
That I ain't gonna hurt you no more

So here's my dear John, don't waste your time
When you respond I'll be gone
Before I change my mind
I'll just stop now and say goodbye
I'll just stop now and say goodbye
I'll just stop now and say goodbye
