I'd rather live a life of lies and fantasy
Than face the truth and realize you're leaving me
You built me up so high, my heart can't stand to fall
And life without your love just isn't life at all

So walk out backwards, if you must go
And please don't wave goodbye, just wave one last hello
The truth won't hurt so much if I can just pretend
So walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in

You walked into my heart in search of sympathy
From that day down to this you've walked all over me
And now you're walking out to love somebody new
But you're not by yourself 'cause my heart's leaving too

So walk out backwards if you must go
And please don't wave goodbye, just wave one last hello
The truth won't hurt so much if I can just pretend
So walk out backwards and I'll think you're walking in
