What Hurts The Most 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
And just let ’em out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though goin’ on with you 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 havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowing
What could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain
Of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ it
It’s hard to force that smile
When I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder
Gettin’ up, gettin’ dressed
Dealin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away
All the words that I say in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowing
What could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

Is what I was trying to do
Oh-oh-oh-oh

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowing
What could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

What hurts the most
Whenever you walk away
Yeah, oh-oh-oh-ohhhh
