Bet you didn't realize it's been more than a hundred days
I didn't know what I wanted and I lost faith,
I took the easy route out to get away,
I let go of what we had and began to stray.
Nobody to blame but myself for my mistakes,
I finally found somebody real out of all the fakes,
I threw it down the drain when the coming got rough,
I opted for the easiest solutions when things got tough.
There's times when I tell myself I don't deserve,
and even if I did I'd never have the nerve,
to come back to you and let you know what I've realized,
after putting you through such unnecessary demise
But I guess as the hours turned to days and days to weeks,
I remained single as I strolled into boutiques,
No one to show things to when I discovered something neat,
No one to impress when I bought new boots for my feet.
So after all that's said and done,
I would never ask you to come for a second run,
but I guess I grew some grit since I'm here to say,
I'm sorry and I've been missing you each day.
