I could hold my head up high
And say that I left first
Tell me which is worse

Or I can hang my head and cry
If you go and ask her why

She might say she's not sure
Trust me when I tell you I'm

I want her to be happy
Not good enough for her
I want her to be everything she couldn't be with me
I want her to be free


If she'd come back to me

I'd wait here for a thousand years
I have everything she wants
But nothing that she needs

I want her to be happy

I want her to be free
I want her to be everything she couldn't be with me


I could hold my head up high and say that I left first
Or I can hang my head and cry
Tell me which is worse


If you go and ask her why
Trust me when I tell you I'm not good enough for herShe might say she's not sure
