Dear John Lyrics

by Amerie

Dear John, right now you're probably wondering
Where I am, who I'm with
And why you're reading this
But before I go into, what I'm up to let me confess

Dear sweetheart, I know about your secret
Where you've been, who you with, I saw you out with her
And yet you always try to maintain
How I got a good thing and I can't do better

Do you remember what you told me?
'Cause I remember it well
Do you remember how you said no one could want me?
And I said time will tell

That's why I'm so sorry that I couldn't be there
To see the look upon your face
And I'm so sorry that it took me so long
So long to put you in your place

I'm writin' you this letter just to let you know
That, that I still love you but I won't be comin' back
You had me at hello, now I gotta say goodbye
'Cause one too many times you made me cry

Dear John, I'm hopin' that this finds you well
Dear John, but you put me through a living hell
Dear John, you left me with nothin' to do
Dear John, dear John, I'm leaving you, I'm leaving you

Dear John, by now you'll probably see
My clothes are gone, keys are gone and I ain't bluffin'
So don't even bother to call my number
'Cause I got it changed

Why John, couldn't just see?
I gave my heart, gave my time and I got nothin'
So it shouldn't be surprising, this letter I'm writin'
That you're there by yourself

Do you remember what you told me?
'Cause I remember it well
Do you remember how you said no one would want me?
And I said time will tell

That's why I'm so sorry that I couldn't be there
To see the look upon your face
And I'm so sorry that it took me so long
So long to put you in your place, yeah

I'm writin' you this letter just to let you know that
That I still love you but I won't be comin' back
You had me at hello, now I gotta say goodbye
'Cause one too many times you made me cry

Dear John, I'm hopin' that this find you well
Dear John, but you put me through a living hell
Dear John, you left me with nothin' to do
Dear John, dear John, I'm leaving you

But I can't end this with those saying
Thank you for everything you put me through
I've come so far alone, now I'm leaving
I'm leaving, I'm leaving, I'm movin' on

And now I'm so much wiser
'Cause the pain that you gave me
Never ever put me down
You only made me strong
I'm leavin', I'm leavin', I'm leavin', John, I'm gone

I'm writin' you this letter just to let you know
That, that I still love you but I won't be comin' back
You had me at hello, now I gotta say goodbye
'Cause one too many times you made me cry

Dear John, I'm hopin' that this find you well
Dear John, but you put me through a livin' hell
Dear John, you left me with nothin' to do
Dear John, dear John, I'm leaving you
