I don't' know why it should be sohard
Givin' up this circle dance
Worn out steps from long ago
Don't give love a chance

It's a bitter heirloom handed down
These twisted parts we play
I'm not her and you're not him
It just comes out that way

Can't go back to make things right
(though I) wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer now
We did the best we could

I'll be home soon, that's what you'd say
And a little kid believes
After a while I learned that love
Must be a thing that leaves

I tried so hard just to hold you near
Was as good as I could be
Even when I had you here
You stayed so far from me

Can't go back to make things right
(though I) wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer now
You did the best you could

Now that this has occurred tome
I just wanted you to know
I've been too faithful all my life
It's time to let you go
