You say you want to talk it over
Want to try again
But there's no way of workin' out
This love that we're not in

We could talk and talk and accomplish nothin'
We've tried it all before
It's time somebody did some walkin'
And I can see the door

So I'd just as soon go
I'd just as soon say goodbye
There's no reason to prolong
What we should just let die

And I'd just as soon stop
I'd just as soon end the madness
Knowin' what I know
I'd just as soon go

It's not an easy thing to do
Leavin' seldom ever is
But stayin' just to see us through
Just ain't no way to live

It's hard for you to understand
But we're better off this way
I can't fake it one more night
Or take it one more day

So I'd just as soon go
I'd just as soon say goodbye
There's no reason to prolong
What we should just let die

And I'd just as soon stop
I'd just as soon end the madness
Knowin' what I know
I'd just as soon go

Knowin' what I know
I'd just as soon go

    I have so many favorites of georges' but this one is definitely in my top 10. I have lived this situation where it just isn't working out with someone and it's better to just get out. This song says it all, there's no reason to prolong it, just let it die. You know when it is the right one and when it's not you'd just as soon go!
