Sometimes late at night I curse your name
Guess some things never change
Half an empty bed where the words start makin’ sense
Rememberin’ what you used to say

All these memories comin’ back
Like a tidal wave inside
Way it felt when you held me I could tell
That would be the last time

I’m not the same without your love
Couldn’t keep you it ain’t no wonder why
Something’s changin’ in my heart
I been thinkin’ ‘bout how tough you were
For leavin’ before you treated me unkind

Do it different if I could
Gave it all I don’t care how it looked
Saw it comin’ clear as day and you left me anyway
Hope you know I understood

I’m not the same without your love
Couldn’t keep you it ain’t no wonder why
Something’s changin’ in my heart
I been thinkin’ ‘bout how tough you were
For leavin’ before you treated me unkind

One fine day I will be a stronger man
Carry more than my own weight
Wish we met when I was better but it’s best I understand
You made me who I am today
