Lyrics:

No, no regrets
No, we will have no regrets
As you leave, I can say
Love was king, but for only a day

No, no regrets
No, let there be no regrets
Why explain
Why delay
Don’t go away
Simply call it a day

Pleading moments we knew
I will set them apart
Ev’ry word, ev’ry sign
Will be burned in my heart
But no tears will be shed
There’ll be no one to blame
Let it always be said
We attempted what came

No, no regrets
No, we will have no regrets
As you leave, I can say
Love was king, but for only a day

Life still goes on
Yes, even though love has gone
One last kiss
Shrug and sigh
No Regrets even though it’s goodbye
