I remember that night, putting your hands on your face
And I didn't know what to do.
I didn't know what to say.
So I just sat there.
And you looked at me (looked at me) in that way
And all of a sudden I knew,
That you were gonna go away. (that you were gonna go away)
And how could I.
Be alone.
Without you. What do I do now.
Cause ya, said goodbye.
Leave me on my own.
Without you.
And I found out (and I found out)

Sometimes things don't work the way they should
And good things don't last forever
But you did the best you could (did the best you could)
And then you came back, just like I knew you would.
Some things don't last forever but you did the best you could
And that's all that matters now.

If I could turn back time, I wouldn't change a thing
Cause that's just how it goes.
You probably think that I wouldn't... ?
But I'd be dead and gone by then.
It took a while, took a while to see.
But in the end we all know.
I just didn't want to believe. (just didn't want to believe)
I stay awake at night, thinking of what we used to be.
Cause ya said goodbye,
Didn't give a fuck what you meant to me.
And I found out (I found out)

Sometimes things don't work the way they should
And good things don't last forever
But you did the best you could (did the best you could)
And then you came back just like I knew you would.
Some things don't last forever but you did the best you could
And that's all that matters now.

When I see you in the street.
You turn away.
I just can't take it, I heard 'em say, you were moving on.
You make me feel like a creep.
It's just not fair. What the fuck.
I just don't get where this is coming from.

Sometimes things don't work the way they should
And good things don't last forever
But you did the best you could (did the best you could)
And then you came back just like I knew you would.
Some things don't last forever but you did the best you could
And that's all that matters now.
