So much I thought I'd have to say
Though I try to speak, my meaning strays.
We can't avoid the facts that brought us here.
I have come to say goodbye.
The lies I try to tell with my own eyes;
An act of pride, a willful compromise.
Please understand how torn I am
When I walk away from here.
I lament the moments we won't share.
If I am far too sentimental, I apologize.
Please understand this is who I am
And who I'll still be when I've walked away from here.
You know I'm not unkind
When I say in the future,
The past is just the past.
No going back,
No change of heart
But this is now,
Time will not differ.
My thoughts(?) betray, so easily confess(?)
How long I'll wait here after you have gone.
Nothing ends(?) but I don't believe that now
Please don't walk away from here.
I went alone and I remember days.
Nothing will change a single fact(?) of who you were to me
Oh, come what may, forever to the end
I find it so hard to let you go.
And hush now, let it go now
There's no need for sad goodbyes.
Hush now, let it go now
I know it's time to go.
Time to let this fall from my hands
