I’m leaving in the morning
it’s not right but it’s all I can do
when it comes down to a choice
of the lesser of two evils
I’d rather go than stay hurting you
I’d rather go than stay hurting you

Will you miss me no, don’t answer
the remains of my heart shouldn’t know
‘cause it’s just lost a battle
and the love a lifetime
so it’s probably best to leave it alone
it needs to rest and be left alone

I thought our love was doing just fine
it’s been going good all of this time
our lives had come together… I thought you were mine
and it seemed our souls were so entertwined

I don’t understand why you’re crying
you’ve changed your mind and want me to stay
you think it still might work and apologize for saying
the words that nearly drove me away
It couldn’t hurt if I was here for one more day

Well, maybe we should try it
and I pray that this will work out
I suppose you could persuade me to stay
I didn’t really want to leave you anyway
