lyrics

Dear John, it's time for me to go
I was beginning to think that maybe I had found the one
Dear John, it's gettin' late and so
I have to go, I have to go

Because she needs you more than I do
Yeah she deserves a happy family
Don't worry about me, I'll be alright
Out of mind, and out of sight

I never meant to fall in love
Oh but your friendship, well it fit me just like a glove
And it hurts to have to leave
Knowin' that your kisses, yea I'll never receive

Because she needs you more than I do
Yeah she deserves a peaceful family
Don't worry about me, I'll be alright
Out of my mind, but out of sight

I'll try my hardest, to forget
But you're always gonna be
The sweetest man I ever met

Dear John, it's time for me to go
I guess I'll get my coat and make my way to the door
Dear John, it's gettin' late and so
I have to go, I have to go

Because she needs you more than I do
Yeah she deserves a united family
Don't worry about me, I'll be okay
I love you John, I'm goin' away

Don't worry about me, I'll be okay
I love you John, I'm goin' away
