If I had my way, I would say "It's over darling"
If I could be brave, I would say "I'm leaving you"

But I must stay on 'till all hope is gone

'Cause girl I know
Anywhere you go
You'll still be needing me

If you feel you can't make it on your own my darling
I'll be on your side when you can't find anyone
But for now let's try just to get by

Let the tide roll out
Let the tide roll in
It's time to sink or swim

La-la-la-la-la, lala-la-la-lalalala
La-la-la-la-la, lala-la-la-lalalala

If I could be strong, I'd be gone tomorrow morning
Still I play the part making life a broken toy

But I must stay on
'Till all hope is gone

'Cause girl I know
Anywhere you go
You'll still be needing me

Let the tide roll out
Let the tide roll in
It's time to sink or swim

La-la-la-la-la, lala-la-la-lalalala
La-la-la-la-la, lala-la-la-lalalala
