He packed his thoughts up in a brown suitcase made for two
And placed a picture in his pocket
This one time he did not leave the key under the mat
He took the subway in Atlanta, and realized he wasn’t coming back

He grabbed a hotel on his way, whatever way that was
And bought drinks to occupy the time
He spent the night alone, but he wasn’t really
Whenever they asked him he’d say, “Fine, fine, yeah I’m just fine.”

He never wrote and he never called
Until he showed up on her doorstep, one fall
And immediately her feelings came rushing back
For the moment she was happy

But he said, “I am sorry, I’ve made a mistake.
I should never have come back to this place.
Yes, I am sorry, I know I was wrong.
For two years I’ve been gone and it’s been too long.”

Two years made a difference, you’re not the same one I loved.
No, you’re not the same one I loved.
