There's no other way to say it baby
I gotta let you know just what I feel
We've had better days than what's been happening lately
I don't wanna walk away
But I gotta be real with you
And I've heard you say you're gonna change
But I'm afraid that it's too late
It's too late
It's too late

You're more than just a friend to me baby
And I won't do you wrong no matter what's going on
And though I feel the need to leave it pains me
Right down to my bones the hurt is so strong
And I've heard you say you're gonna change
But I'm afraid it's too late
It's late
Oh, I believe that it's too late
It's too late
It's too late

Chorus:
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do

I've spent days and nights contemplating
Over you and me and the road I'm taking
And I hope in the end that you won't hate me

I know you feel the same if you'd only face it
And I've heard you say you're gonna change
But I'm afraid that it's too late
It's too late
Oh, I believe that it's too late
It's too late
It's too late

Chorus:
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do
(That I can do, yeah)
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do
(I can do)
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do
(I can do)
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do
I'm giving you the best of me
The best it's true
But I can't get the best from you
So I guess goodbye is the best thing I can do
(The best that I can do)
