Marty Robbins – I'll Go On Alone lyrics

We're travelin' down two diff'rent roads
In worlds so far apart
You want me yet there's somethin' else
Before me in your heart
You're wantin' me to change my life
The way you're livin' yours
But I can't change, I see no way
You wanted me before.

If you don't want me like I am
Then please don't pity me
If you can't change a little bit
Then why not set me free
If we can't live together, then
It's best we live apart
You go your way and I'll go mine
We'll both make brand new starts.

There's nothing we can do it seems
We'll never get along
With you believin' like you do
You say I live so wrong
But I can't change my way of life
I've lived it much too long
You'll either take me like I am
Or I'll go on alone.

So, either say you want my love
Or take the way you live
Remember though before you get
You've gotta learn to give
So, if it's change my life, or go
Then go, it's gonna be
'Cause I can't change my life, when you
Want somethin' more than me.
