Dear John
by Amerie



dear john
by now youre probably wondering
where i am who im with
and why you are reading this
but before i go into..
what im up to let me confess
dear sweetheart
i know about ur secret
where you've been, who you with, i saw you out with her
and yet you always try to maintain
how i got a good thing and i cant do better
do you remember what you told me?
cause i remember it well (how could i forget)
do u remember how u said no one could want me
and i said time will tell

thats why im so sorry
that i couldn't be there
to see the look up on your face
and im so sorry that it took me so long
so long to put you an your place

im writin u this letter
just to let u know that
that i still love you
but i wont be comin back
u had me at hello
now i gotta say goodbye
cause one too many times u made me cry

dear john
im hopin that this find you well..
dear john
but you put me through a living hell
dear john
you left me with nothin to do
dear john
dear john
Im leaving u
Im leaving u

dear john
by now ur probably see my clothes are gone
keys are gone and i aint lovin
so don't even bother
to call my number
cause i got it changed
why john
couldn't just see
i gave my heart, gave my time
and i got nothin
so it shouldn't be surprising
this letter im writin
that you there by yourself
do you remember what you told me?
cause i remember it well (how could i forget)
do u remember how u said no one would want me
and i said time will tell

thats why im so sorry
that i couldn't be there
to see the look up on your face
and im so sorry that it took me so long
so long to put you an your place

im writin u this letter
just to let u know that
that i still love you
but i wont be comin back
u had me at hello
now i gotta say goodbye
cause one too many times u made me cry

dear john
im hopin that this find you well
dear john
but you put me through a living hell
dear john
you left me with nothin to do
dear john
dear john
I'm leaving u

but i can end this with those saying
thank you for everything you put me through
ive come so far alone
im leaving im leaving im leaving
im movin on
and now im so much wiser
cause the pain that you gave me
never ever put me down
ur only made me strong
im leavin im leavin im leavin
john, im gone

im writin u this letter
just to let u know that
that i still love you
but i wont be comin back
u had me at hello
now i gotta say goodbye
cause one too many times u made me cry

dear john
im hopin that this find you well
dear john
but you put me through a livin hell
dear john
you left me with nothin to do
dear john
dear john
I'm leaving u
