This weathered life
Story of lessons
Writes it’s broken end
And no one knows better
Cause I should have never let you go

Such foolish pride
To have all the answers
Thoughts all turn to rust
And I should have listened
When I saw the distance between us grow

And if I ever made you cry
Can you forgive me?
Cause you were the best part of my life
And the fault it was only mine

That leaving smile
Words that fall apart
One foot out the door
Oh I wish I’d said something
Cause you were the one thing worth fighting for

And if I ever made you cry
Can you forgive me?
Cause you were the best part of my life
And the fault it was only mine

This weathered life
Story of lessons
Writes it’s broken end
And no one knows better
Cause I should have never let you go
I never should’ve let you go

And if I ever made you cry
Can you forgive me?
Cause you were the best part of my life
And the fault it was only mine
