When you love somebody with all your heart and soul
And you want to keep them with you, but you know they want to go
What do you do, what do you say
When you know they want to leave
As bad as you want them to stay
And there's nothing quite as sad as a one-sided love
When one doesnt't't care at all and the other cares too much
Its a sad situation, I must say
When you know they want to leave
As bad as you want them to stay

You know how much I love you
But I know you don't love me
And I know it's just a matter of time before you leave
But I do, I stand aside and just let you walk away
But I know you want to leave
As bad as I want you to stay

And there's nothing quite as sad as a one-sided love
When one doesnt't't love at all and the other loves too much
Its a sad situation I must say
When someone wants to leave as bad as you want them to stay
Oh, it's a sad situation I must say
When someone wants to leave as bad as you want them to stay
