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
