Yeah, a lot a mysteries, a lot a histories Too much blowin' up and showin' up, and not enough growin' up
I mean it happens, people change, yeah
A brother changes everyday but ah, most of all we changed  Sometimes makin' up is easier than breakin' up
We believe if we just fake it enough We can trick ourselves into believing That we're still in love

But in our hearts we know that it's inevitable Though it's hard to let you go I know I must Sometimes memories just ain't enough Sometimes you out grow the ones you love
 Sometimes it's none of the above It's just a fact that people change

No one's to blame There ain't nothing that stays the same
So we sit around an cry because neither one of us Wants to be the first to say goodbye  Sometimes giving second chances is easier than dealing with the fact
That once the trust is gone you can never get it back
But you're holding on because you're afraid of being alone
So here you are holding on to something that's already gone

And don't act like it's the first time you've heard it in this song
'Cause your heart done told you all along If your momma done showed you right from wrong Nothing should hold you down this long

There's no one to blame Nothing stays the same
So we sit around an cry because neither one of us Wants to be the first to say goodbye, bye, my love, oh

So let me be first to say goodbye
