"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


The author's comments:
I wrote this as I was typing it...literally crying...well, anyways, I just wanted this to have kind of a message...we've all been heart broken, we all have been knocked down with the wind knocked out of them, but you have to learn how to say no, how to say goodbye and do what's best for you.
