(Anthony Smith/Al Anderson)

Last night you gave me a kiss
You didn't know it, but I was awake when you did
You were quiet, you were gonna let me sleep
So I just laid there pretending to be
You said some things you didn't
Know I could hear
And the words "I love you" never
Sounded so sincere

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

This morning I rolled out of bed
Recalling all the sweet things you said
This was the day I was gonna hurt you bad
Called out your name, but you
Didn't answer back
I searched the house to find out what was wrong
Like a ton of bricks, it hit me you were gone

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

All along I knew that there was
Something missing
And only one thing left to do
I had to leave behind this life that
We'd been living
But the only thing that left was you

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But being alone is my worst fear
And staying here is my worst fear
