The longer you wait to leave me
The longer I'll hurt when you're gone
And the longer it takes you to break my heart
The longer the pain lingers on

How long will you prolong my misery?
Wish I could leave on my own
'Cause the longer you wait to leave me
The longer I'll hurt when you're gone

We both know that you never loved me
I lied to myself from the start
We both know that someday you'll leave me
And the knowin' just tears me apart

How long will you prolong my misery?
Wish I could leave on my own
'Cause the longer you wait to leave me
The longer I'll hurt when you're gone
The longer I'll hurt when you're gone
