Dear john
Right now you are probably wondering 
Where I am who I'm with and why you are reading this
But before I go into.. 
What I'm up to let me confess
Dear sweetheart 
I know about you're 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 can't do better
Do you remember what you told me? 
Cause I remember it well (how could I forget)
Do you remember how you said no one could want me
And I said time will tell

that's why I'm so sorry 
That I couldn't be there 
To see the look up on your face
And I'm so sorry that it took me so long 
So long to put you an your place

I'm writin you this letter 
Just to let you know that 
That I still love you 
But I won't be comin back
You had me at hello 
Now I gotta say goodbye 
Cause one too many times you made me cry

dear john
I'm 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 you
I'm leaving you

dear john
By now you're probably see my clothes are gone
Keys are gone and I ain't 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 I'm writin 
That you there by yourself
Do you remember what you told me? 
Cause I remember it well (how could I forget)
Do you remember how you said no one would want me 
And I said time will tell

that's why I'm so sorry 
That I couldn't be there 
To see the look up on your face
And I'm so sorry that it took me so long 
So long to put you an your place 

I'm writin you this letter 
Just to let you know that 
That I still love you 
But I won't be comin back
You had me at hello 
Now I gotta say goodbye 
Cause one too many times you made me cry

dear john
I'm 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 you

but I can end this with those saying 
Thank you for everything you put me through
I've come so far alone
I'm leaving I'm leaving I'm leaving 
I'm movin on
And now I'm so much wiser
Cause the pain that you gave me
Never ever put me down
You're only made me strong
I'm leavin I'm leavin I'm leavin
John, I'm gone

I'm writin you this letter 
Just to let you know that 
That I still love you 
But I won't be comin back
You had me at hello 
Now I gotta say goodbye 
Cause one too many times you made me cry

dear john
I'm 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 you
