You were supposed to stay here, I wanted to be by your side. Why’d you go far away and never come back, like you could just leave us behind? How could someone do something so cowardly, I don’t know. How do you live like that? Why’d you put all your problems on us saying, “I can’t do this?” Why'd you leave when I needed you most saying, “I can't do this?” ‘Cause you tore us apart and you cut out my heart when you gave up and walked out the door. So I hope that you’re happy ‘cause I can’t do this no more. Wish you could see all the times I needed someone to be there. I still want you around, but I don’t know why, deep down I wish I couldn’t care. I can’t count the times I thought of you, I wanted you, cried for you. I was scared that I might be like you when I found someone to love. With my own on the way, I start thinking that I can't do this. All my life I’ve been running away because I can’t do this. But she's waiting 9 months, getting sick, throwing up, swear I'll be by her forever more. ‘Cause she taught me to love, and I'll never give up, ‘cause I know what it's like all alone.
