Lyrics

So I guess that’s just the way it goes
And the truth is that they’ll never know
How you called me up to apologize
When you showed up here in May I cried
Thinking this was really it this time
Said you’re moving here and we’d be fine

I’ve never been so wrong before
You were never what you seemed to be
You fooled them all and played me too, I’m sure
Still I’m thinkin’ about the Summer of ‘17

When we were four years in and hiding still
Then you sold your house ‘cause you couldn’t pay the bills
Instead of moving in with me you moved back home
Left me wondering what the hell went wrong
Thinking maybe we could move away
“Let’s start again in Nashville,” we’d say

I’ve never been so wrong before
You were never what you seemed to be
You said you were gonna move
And be with me for real this time
And you said it again in the Summer of ‘17

You called and I cried, you said you want to try
Showed up at my door, “We could be so much more”
The following days were the best of the year
I couldn’t believe you were finally here
You promised to change, no more lies, no more games
We set up a plan and I counted the days
Then in the Fall it all started to change
You never came back and took none of the blame
Now you’re telling the world you’re justified
But they don’t know truth about all of your lies
How you cheated, betrayed, played victim so well
Protecting your name while you put me through hell

I’ve never been so wrong before
You were never what you seemed
To be, to me or anyone
I started over here in Tennessee for you and me
You kept me hanging on til the Summer of ‘17
No one knew about us in the Summer of ‘17
I’ll never forget the Summer of ‘17
