I didn't fail I gave a tryin' tryin' to hold you to me
I let you go we'll say goodbye but don't leave the leaving up to me
Our great love we had is over all we cherished is gone
Nothing ever last forever it's time for moving along
But I can't go my feet won't take me I can't go so please don't make me
Be the one to make the move to be free
One goodbye deserves another so now goodbye it would be
We'd let go of one another but don't leave the leaving up to me
[ steel ]
Why do I hate so much to lose you why this hurting inside
Is it you I'm holding onto or is it only my pride
Don't stay along the doubts unfold you I make me a chain of tears and hold you
Don't wait around for you may never be free
One goodbye deserves another so now goodbye it would be
We'd let go of one another but don't leave the leaving up to me
Don't leave the leaving up to me don't leave the leaving up to me
