    A lil while ago I lost a great love of my life
    Thought that lovin someone again wouldn't eva be right
    I locked my heart and threw away the key
    And promised to never let another get that close to me
    Blamed myself cause I didn't see any of the signs
    When they gave me your final letter thought I was gonna lose my mind
    900 some days have passed and still can't let you go
    Baby boy I'm missin you like $hit, but there's sumthin you need to know

    I've found someone else and he's made me smile again
    Still no one will ever take the place you have in my heart, you were my best friend
    You were my light in the dark, my heat in the cold
    My peace in a noisy room, that hand I could neva fold
    You quenched my dying thirst with your rain
    When I was hurt, only you knew my pain

    So even though I'm letting you go, it's only to set both of us free
    And even though my tears have stopped, doesn't mean my heart don't bleed
    But baby boy, I deserve to be happy, to smile once again
    So smile for me papi, still my first love, always my best friend
