I Gotta Go

I’m far from perfect / convinced myself that it was worth it
but, in the end, it really wasn’t working
and that’s for certain / the show is over closed curtain
and now we’re dealing with the aftermath / I know we left each other hurting 
I used to see you in my dreams now they're nightmares 
cause every time I wake you’re never right here 
had a lot of laughs / shed a lot of tears 
and you’re the only thing I’ve known for these past years 
yeah / but I guess things change
I guess we’re at the point we need to let love fade 
this ain’t the first time we end up walking away 
but will it be the last time we end up wanting to stay 
cause we was up on cloud nine then we fell from the sky 
but never thought that that would ever lead to saying goodbye 
it still haunts me to this day that look you had in your eyes 
when we said that it was over and you started to cry 

 

now I've got memories / of our good times 
and you're the only one on my mind 
used to be so good / now it's so bad
I never thought that it wouldn't last 
wonder will you ever see / what you did to me 
yeah and I will I be who I used to be 
so I got to go now / cause you’ll never change 
all you do is cause more pain / so i gotta to go
I just gotta go
It's time for me to go
I gotta go

and so I’m sorry / I hope you see I meant you no harm 
I ain’t moved on just yet / I guess the feelings is strong 
It all felt so meant to be and then somehow it went wrong 
I still wonder how you’re doing / we ain't spoke in so long 
how could you blame me / say that everything was my fault 
so many times that I tried / you never wanted to talk 
I know I made my mistakes / but see I gave you my all 
so at the end of the day / it's like we both took a loss
cause I loved you to death you loved me the same 
so when I think of you now it always causes me pain 
can't get you out of my mind / it's like you're stuck in my brain 
but it just wasn't working and so I tried to explain 
cause you took me for granted / and I couldn't stand it 
and when I finally left / you said you felt so abandoned
what'd you expect me to do / you made it all about you 
of course, I wanted you happy / but see I needed that too

now I've got memories / of our good times 
and you're the only one on my mind 
used to be so good / now it's so bad
I never thought that it wouldn't last 
wonder will you ever see / what you did to me 
yeah and I will I be who I used to be 
so I got to go now / cause you’ll never change 
all you do is cause more pain / so I gotta to go
I just gotta go
It's time for me to go
I gotta go

cause we were dreaming / and then the world fell from underneath us 
and that just made us change our demeanor / it made me a believer 
that things really happen for a reason 
cause we just went and changed liked the seasons
cause we were dreaming / and then the world fell from underneath us 
and that just made us change our demeanor / it made me a believer 
that things really happen for a reason 
cause we just went and changed liked the seasons

now I got memories / of our good times 
and you're the only one on my mind 
used to be so good / now it's so bad
I never thought that it wouldn't last 
wonder will you ever see / what you did to me 
yeah and I will I be who I used to be 
so I got to go now / cause you’ll never change 
all you do is cause more pain / so gotta to go
I just gotta go
It's time for me to go
I gotta go
