I've been down this road before
I walk out the door
Leave you on the floor
Sometimes you run and hide
Your foolish prides
What keeps me from giving you more

So the best thing
I can give to you
Is for me to go
Leave you alone
Cause you got growin' up to do

Some day I'll return when it's time
For payment in kind
The church bells'll chime
You'll stand before me surrounded by lights
Dressed in white
You'll throw flowers in the air
This night

But the best thing
I can give to you
Is for me to go
Leave you alone
You got growin' up to do

Looks like the rain's pouring down on me
It's drowning me now
All I want is to come back home
This old corduroy coat
It's not keeping me dry
But I can't think of what else to try

That's why the best thing
I can give to you
Is for me to go
Leave you alone
You got growin' up to do

Now the best thing
I can give to you
Is for me to go
Leave you alone
You got growin' up to do
