but i wont remake the whole thing

I know the nights are as long as the days are hard
and you wonder if anyone has ever been this lonely before.
I know it feels like a knife has been thrown at your heart
and people made promises, on their lives they swore.
I know that this pain will leave you broken and scarred
and you will carry it with you forevermore.
I know the whole world crumbles when love falls apart
and how hard it is to let it walk out the door.
I know all this because I’ve been there as well
I’m sorry to tell, I’m sorry to tell.

I know that even good people do things that are bad
and we all make our fair share of mistakes.
I know that we all try to do the best that we can
and sometimes we still end up in heartache.
I know with change comes missing what you had
and those memories you wont be able to remake,
I know that this wasn’t part of the plan
and that love sometimes ends in heartbreak.
I know all this because I’ve been there as well
I’m sorry to tell, I’m sorry to tell.
