Lyrics
I'm not gonna tell you to stay
Hold onto your heart as I play
Turn away
While my love for you goes astray
I've gotta love myself before
I let you love me anymore
Oh the hurt is so strong
I Had to sit and write you this song

Nobody told you to stay
But deep in my heart I will pray
Oh that someday
You'll have it in you to wait
I've torn your heart in two
Told you again that we were through
No I can't do this to you
Time and time again that's what I do

Hard to be strong enough
To cry
It's killin me
Inside
Takes a big girl
Not to hide

Swallow my pride
Don't wait till the water runs dry
Don't know why
Oh me oh my tell me why
Why I can't make you the one
And why we forgot how to have fun
Oo baby oo baby oo can't you see
I'm makin a mess outta me

Hard to be strong enough
To cry
It's killin me
Inside
Takes a big girl
Not to hide
Swallow my pride

Nobody told you to stay
You probably don't care what I say
...... Might be too late
But I just wanna tell you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, So sorry
