(d. Warren, A. Hammond)
Producers: bryan adams and bob clearmountain
Album: the collected recordings (94)
B-side of the "typical male" single

If you wanna leave I won't beg you to stay
And if you gotta go darling maybe it's better that way
I'm gonna be strong, I'm gonna do fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Just walk out that door, see if I care
Go on and go now but

Don't turn around
Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me cry
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go
But I won't let you know

I won't miss your arms around me holding me tight
If you ever think about me just know that I'll be alright
I'm gonna be strong, I'm gonna do fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
I know I'll survive, sure I'll make it through
And I'll even learn to live without you

Don't turn around
Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me cry
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go
But I won't let you know

I wish I could scream out loud that I love you
I wish I could say to you don't go, don't go, don't go

Don't turn around
Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me cry
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go
But I won't let you know
