I've lived over half my life
And she's only just nineteen
Will she wake up one day and find
That she's really changed her mind
And she's not in love with me

Does she love the man I am
Is it her Father that she sees
She has time to be unsure
For her there's time to find a cure
But not for me

So, before she breaks my heart
I must say "go"
Before she breaks my heart
I must say "no"

She can't stay (She can't stay)
I must make her go away
However hard she cries
If I have to tell her lies
Before she breaks my heart

As I stand alone, I vow
That today will be the day
That I'll find the strength somehow
To end it here and now
To tell her she can't stay

Then she'll walk into the room
And her arms will open wide
It's not a little girl I see
But a woman, warm and free
Who wants me by her side

But before she breaks my heart
I must say "go"
Before she breaks my heart
I must say "no"

She can't stay (She can't stay)
I must make her go away
However hard she cries
If I have to tell her lies
Before she breaks my heart

Before she breaks my heart
