There are times that I do miss you
But I must keep movin' on
I never thought that I would wake up
And you'd be gone
You never thought about me

Don?t you take me for no fool, boy
I know [Incomprehensible] yeah
This whole city know that I?m crazy
To think that I wouldn?t see you
Through all your mess

Through the good and bad
What a good thing we had
