Because I didn't know how to love
All have left me here
All alone
Since I couldn't
Didn't know how

Because I didn't know how to love
My wishes to be happy were gone
Since I couldn't
Didn't know how

Sometimes you look at me sadly
But you quickly turn away
Saying that you're busy

I'm sorry I was an idiot
And didn't know how to love
I'm sorry I didn't know how to love you

I realized that you're the spring that brings my flowers
That brightens my day
I'm sorry that I didn't know how to love

I now know that I don't want to be alone in this world
Now I just want to see you.
I hope it's not too late

Even if you meet another person
Someone you chose
Because they could love you back
I'll always want you

Even if you fall in love again
With another person
Because they could love you back
I will always want you

I'm sorry for everything I am
I hope we can reunite
But I know that it's now impossible

You once whispered that
You loved me like crazy
Now you yell that
You hate me like crazy

Even though my heart cries
I realized that
I didn't know how to love back then

Because you bring warmth to my life
Because you're the spring that I will never see again.
Because I didn't know how to love
I'm sorry

I realized that
I don't ever want to be alone again
I could say sorry forever
But I see that you won't hear

Now, that we're together again
Looking at each other for the first time
Even though we've known each other for years
I'm sorry I didn't know how to love

I didn't know how to show love.
I didn't know how to make another person happy.
Since I couldn't
Didn't know how

My heart has stopped crying
I realized that you're the only person
That I will ever love.
We must now part ways again

But if we ever meet again
I'll make the both of us happy.
Because I learned how to love
I love you.
