1. Falling for you was easy, when I tripped over that smile
I thought we had a future but I've known for quite awhile
2. You drew me to you softly like a full moon draws the tide
But now the writings on the wall and baby I'm not blind
C: Before we hurt each other deeper, you know I have to leave
So why you gotta make it harder, harder than it has to be?
Why you gotta make it harder, harder than it has to be?
3. Now you're standing in the doorway, killing me with those eyes
Wrapping yourself around my heart when I'm trying to say goodbye
B: Harder, harder than it has to be, I'm begging you to set me free
