I can sit and try to figure out the reasons why
You were always going out alone
I thought that you were meeting with some other guy
All those times you weren't at home

I was wrong but then I didn't understand
What you were trying to say to me
I thought that you were busy making other plans
None of those including me

But then I always had
Too many insecurities
Why didn't I
Just decide to let it be?

I never should have walked away
I should've been there for you babe
I know I handled this all wrong
I swear, I didn't know

Things are never gonna be the same
And I don't want no one to blame
I've gone and left you torn, baby
Well, I didn't know

I remember it so clear when I got the call
It was the hospital on the phone
They told me how you slipped and had a nasty fall
And would I come and take you home

Now that was bad enough but they had more to say
Felt like the words came out so slow
"I'm afraid she lost the baby but she'll be okay"
And I didn't even know

But now I see
I should've been there
From the start
Instead of letting it all fall apart

I never should have walked away
I should've been there for you babe
I know I handled this all wrong
I swear, I didn't know

Things are never gonna be the same
And I don't want no one to blame
I've gone and left you torn, baby
Well, I didn't know

I didn't know
What was wrong.
Girl, I didn't know

I hope you know I never meant to hurt you, girl
But I was way too blind to see
That you were only trying to protect me, girl
I wish you'd had more faith in me

Now I realize that I've let you down
And you have reasons to act that way
I thought that you were cheating when you weren't around
That's why I had to walk away

But girl looking back
In spite of all that we've been through
I'm asking is there still a chance
For me and you?

I never should have walked away
I should've been there for you babe
I know I handled this all wrong
I swear, I didn't know

Things are never gonna be the same
And I don't want no one to blame
I've gone and left you torn, baby
Well, I didn't know

I never should have walked away
I should've been there for you babe
I know I handled this all wrong
I swear, I didn't know

Things are never gonna be the same
And I don't want no one to blame
I've gone and left you torn, baby
Well, I didn't know
