I’m not the type of girl to feel sorry for myself
But boy I know enough to know you were wrong
I’m not the type of girl to blame everyone else
And then cry all through some stupid love song
So it figures that you’d break my heart
And I wouldn’t feel right letting myself grieve
When I have every right to feel sadness and pain
And my foolish heart won’t let me break free

If you only knew
How much I really cared
How much I feel the fool
In this wasted love affair
If you only knew
How I knew you weren’t the one
How much I regret
After it’s said and done
If you only knew
It’s not all about you
Because I still take the blame
For loving you
If you only knew
Who I really am
If I ever really knew you

I’m a girl who can’t just play a part
If I’m in it, I’m in it all the way
And I’m a girl who has to love with her whole heart
For me, in love there’s really no halfway
That’s one reason why I was so upset
When you turned around and said I wasn’t good enough
And I got over you so damn long ago
But sometimes I don’t recognize who I’ve become

If you only knew
How much I really cared
How much I feel the fool
In this wasted love affair
If you only knew
How I knew you weren’t the one
How much I regret
After it’s said and done
If you only knew
It’s not all about you
Because I still take the blame
For loving you
If you only knew
Who I really am
If I ever really knew you

If you had just listened, listened to me say that
I was alright as long as I was with you
Maybe you’d have heard that I wasn’t quite sure that
This was a good idea, but I’d do it for you
And if you had believed me when I trusted you completely
Maybe we would’ve been, maybe we could’ve been
But it’s too late for coulda-shoulda-wouldas, baby
And I hope you can hear me when I say

If you only knew
How much I really cared
How much I feel the fool
In this wasted love affair
If you only knew
How I knew you weren’t the one
How much I regret
After it’s said and done
If you only knew
It’s not all about you
Because I still take the blame
For loving you
If you only knew
Who I really am
If I ever really knew you

If you only knew
How much I really cared
How much I feel the fool
In this wasted love affair
If you only knew
How I knew you weren’t the one
How much I regret
After it’s said and done
If you only knew
It’s not all about you
Because I still take the blame
For loving you
If you only knew
Who I really am
If I ever really knew you

Now that you’re gone, I can breathe again
Because without you, there’s sun after the rain
And now I believe this was all for the best
And I’m not afraid to let go of the past
Baby I’m sorry for mistakes I made
Now I only wish that you could say the same
But my life goes on, you know I’m doing fine
I hope you’re happy, hope you find peace of mind
