When I left and I said goodbye
Did you know that I meant it, mmmm, that time?
I guess that I didn't quite realize
What I was saying goodbye to
Whoa, just yet

The only asphalt to pave my way
That was you

And damn it if I didn't try to do
Everything that I was supposed to
And now - what do I do now?
Oh, I don't know 'cause I'm still leaving
Now - who's gonna save me next time?
Oh, not you - ooh, for the first time

And the road to get to the other side of your rainbow
It wasn't for me - oh, I guess
I couldn't live - not according to your path
Not happily at least

But damn it if I didn't give it a damn good shot
At least to try and be
And what do I do now
Oh, I don't know 'cause I'm still leaving
And now - who's gonna save me next time?
Oh, not you - ooh, for the first time

But somehow I'll be alright
Somehow I'll be alright

Ooh, when I left and I said goodbye
Did you know that I meant it that time?

And damn it if I didn't try to do
Everything that I was supposed to
And now - what do I do now?
Oh, I don't know
Oh, I'm leaving
And now, who's gonna save me next time?
Oh, won't be you
Ooh, for the first time

But somehow I'll be alright
Somehow I'll be alright
