Sorry's Not Enough

"I'm sorry" can't put back the pieces of a broken heart
there's too much to forgive now
we've reached the end of a broken road,
nowhere left to go,

we can't turn back time,
redo the past,
forget everything we've done, everything we've been through
and I don't have the strength to let it go

I pick up the phone, and then put it back down
was gonna' call you but that'd make things worse
I want to go on, but I can't anymore
it's too hard to put the past behind me

My broken heart has been scattered in the wind
I always have, always will love you more than you know
I pray our paths will meet again, but not now
need some time to recover

The pain still exists, doesn't cease
still have the scar that won't go away
I wish I could just freeze time months ago
but I can't

I lay here in the middle of the night
all the memories keep replaying in my head
I don't mind, I laugh until I cry
but I can't forget goodbye
