I should have told her more I love her
I should've spent more time at home
But should haves really aren't important
Since the fact is, now she's gone

When it said, "Don't let her go"
And if she's wonderin' how I'm doing
Well, I think she ought to know
That I find myself praying
More than I've ever did before
And now I find my heart is breaking
Each time her memory slams the door
And I find myself crying
And trying to hold on
'Cause there ain't nothing short of dying
That's worse than being left alone

I thought I'd be just fine without her
I'd be happy, a free man
But the hurting side of lonesome
Is what I didn't understand
And the lessons that I'm learning
Lord, I'm learning awful well
'Cause nights I used to spend in heaven
Have been replaced by nights of hell
And I find myself praying
More than I've ever did before
And now I find my heart is breaking
Each time her memory slams the door
And I find myself crying
Oh, and trying to hold on
'Cause there ain't nothing short of dying
That's worse than being left alone
