Whitney Houston – I Bow Out lyrics

[Verse:]
Tired of playing this game
And I won't play it no more
And I won't take it no more (uh)
Through with being your fool
And I won't do it no more
And I won't
I won't keep up this act not for one minute
I'm gonna pull
I'm gonna pull this curtain down

(Refrain)
This time I won't play this game
I made a vow to make a change
And I bow out
(I won't be hanging round baby)
I decline to take the pain
And I've resigned the masquerade
And I bow out
(I won't be staying round baby)
I (I) bow (I bow) out

[Verse 2:]
Can't go on with the show
You're just a stage I went through
Now your just fading from view
(yeah yeah)
Time for a change of scene
Guess I'll be taking my leave
I guess I won't
I won't stay in this play not for one minute
I'm gonna make
I'm gonna make my exit now

(Refrain)
This time I won't play this game
(this time I won't)
I made a vow to make a change
(I made a vow)
And I (I) bow out
(I won't be hanging round baby)
I decline to take the pain (I decline)
And I've resigned the masquerade (oh yah)
And I bow out
(I won't be staying round baby)
I (oh) bow (ohhh) out

[Bridge:]
When you're left standing on that stage all alone
Maybe you will realise
You should've learned to treat me right
And when this final act is finally through
Maybe you will wish you'd been
The kind of man you should have been
Now watch me say goodbye
And walk right out of your life
(baby, oh yeah yeah)

(Refrain)
This time I won't play this game
(this time)
I made a vow to make a change
(this time I've made up my mind)
And I (I) bow (I bow) out
(I won't be hanging round baby)
I decline to take the pain
(I decline boy)
And I've resigned the masquerade
(no more, said)
I bow out
(I'm gonna bow out)
(I won't be staying round baby hey)
