Hoo ah hoo yeah
Two years since you walked away from me
Since all of our scattered dreams, huh
Were just thrown away
I'm finally gettin' back to what I used to be
Shared my pain with my family
Think I'm on my way

I can sleep at night, I don't reach for you when I wake up, no
But it's taken some time, yeah
I can live my life without praying that we could make up
I'm movin' on, I'm feeling strong inside but

Sometimes I cry babe
When I'm all alone with this heart of mine, ooh
Sometimes I cry baby
Although you've been gone for a long, long time, ooh yeah yeah
I heard you're movin' in with someone new

I hope all your dreams come true
And you'll both be happy, yeah
Been long enough for me to take a look around
I met a girl, we been hanging out, she's been good for me
But when we making love, she don't take me there like you used to
And it hurts when I lie, when I lie baby
Help me understand how to push you out, forget you
And let you go 'cause Lord knows I've tried yeah

Sometimes I cry baby
Baby I've been hurtin' for a long, long time. Yes I have babe
Sometimes I cry ba-a-a-by
Ain't nothing working for this pain of mine, hoo ooh hoo
I'll just have to fake it
Until I can make it
There's a smile on my face, yeah, but I'm broken inside, yeah

Sometimes I cry
When I'm all alone , when I'm all alone with this heart of mine, yeah
Sometimes I cry baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Although you've been gone for a long long, a long long
Long, long, long, long, long, long, long, yeah, baby, baby, baby
I can't take it no more
I can't take it no no no
No come back to me
Baby, baby please, oh baby, oh, oh
