Song lyrics
I can take the rain
On the roof of this empty house
That don't bother me
I can take a few tears now and then just let 'em out

I'm not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone
Still upsets me there are days every now
And again I pretend I'm okay, but that's not what gets me

What hurts the most, was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

And never knowing, what could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

It's hard to deal with the pain of losing you
Everywhere I go, but I'm doing it
It's hard to force that smile
When I see our old friends and I'm alone

Still harder, getting up getting dressed
Living with this regret but I know, if I could do it over
I would trade give away all the words that I saved
In my heart, that I left unspoken

What hurts the most, is being so close
And having so much to say (Much to say)
And watching you walk away

And never knowing, what could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

Oh-Oh, Yeah-Eh-Eh

What hurts the most, was being so close
And having so much to say (Much to say)
And watching you walk away

And never knowing, what could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

Not seeing that loving you
That's what I was trying to do

This song is about a girl in high school who is in love with her boyfriend...but she never tells him. She never says to him what she sees in the future.

Her father breaks them up and sends him away. She ends up pregnant, and as he's leaving her, he dies in a car crash.

She finally realizes how much she loves him after he's gone, and has to live with the regret of losing him and never having told him how she felt.

My friend told me about this song and i got home and listened to it and i fell in luv with it the second i listened to it. There's something so catchy about it. The instroments are incredible ( reminds me of "Jesus Take the Wheel" Carey Underwood) and the lyrics blow my mind i can't get enough of it.

This song always makes me cry because of all the relationships I could of had if I had just said something to the person I liked. But it is a beautiful song.

This song is so powerful. Especially with what I'm going thru right now. I'm a guy and it even chokes me up some.
