Girl don't you know how much I miss you
I'm lying here thinking about you all the time
You have to realize that I honestly miss you
Thinking about you is jumbling up my mind
I just can't get you out of my mind.

Girl can't you see that I love you
Loving you had always been on your mind
We both have to admit that our love wasn't on time
This feeling for you is so fine
Nothing can compare to a love that shines.

You have to believe me that I don't want to hurt you
Hurting you is the least thing on my mind
I can honestly tell you that sometimes I feel so alone and afraid
It seems to me at times you feel the same way
But we can't keep living our life in the past
Living this way what can possibly last?

Yes I was in love before
I can remember those endless tears and aching heart
I am going to admit that I am insecure
I am kind of wary about being in love again
I don't want to get hurt or feel this pain again.
