Leaving's hard... trust me, it's really bad
It'll shake ya, damn-near break ya, it always has
You don't go until you're praying to break even,
Until staying's worse than leaving

God knows we tried everything that we could do
You can keep your pride and blame me if you need to
Even though this freedom feels a lot like treason,
I know staying's worse than leaving

It's gotta get better, it can't get worse
Hope it's a blessing not a curse
I don't care who passes judgement on my reasons
I know staying's worse than leaving

It's gotta get better, it can't get worse
Hope it's a blessing not a curse
I don't care who passes judgement on my reasons
I know staying's worse than leaving

Both our hearts let go a long time ago
Words leave scars and Lord knows they heal slow
Our love died but somehow we are both still breathin'
I just hope someday we'll look back on this grievin'
And say, staying's worse than leaving
Yeah, that staying's worse than leaving

Yeah, that staying's...
... worse than leaving
