Mcmaster & James – I Understand lyrics

Here I am alone again tonight
Talking to myself...again
Lately, I've been seeing less of you
What's a man to do?

I understand that you've been busy
I understand there's not much time
You've always got the best intentions
Every single time

As the hours of the night roll by
Just like your alibis, I stop and think(stop and think)
It's not like I don't really know you well...
Sometimes I think I know you better (than you know yourself)

I understand that it's been crazy
And you can't be by my side
You've got the perfect explanation
Every single time baby, every single time
I understand...ooohh I understand oh baby
And now I understand
I understand... oohh oh oh oh

If absence makes the heart grow
Fonder, why do I grow
Stronger in my resolve
Everyday I notice I'm becoming someone
Someone who understands
Oh baby I understand I understand

I understand you really miss me
But you can't be by my side
You always got the best excuses
You're such a creative girl
You always seemed to keep me waiting
And now I really understand
That I'm the one who should be changing
I will never ever wait again, wait again, wait again

I understand...I understand...I understand
I used to think you really loved me
But know I know that you just don't care
You just don't care about me baby, no,
So now when I leave you, I hope you understand
