Vince Gill – The Strings That Tie You Down lyrics

You're so close to tellin' me you're leaving
Packin' up your things and leavin' town
If you can walk away the rest is easy
Once you cut the strings that tie you down

Just look me in the eye and say it's over
Just tell me you don't want me around
Once you say goodbye, it's gone forever
Once you cut the strings that tie you down

There's no way I can picture me without you
I still think of you in your wedding gown
If I have to give you up, may God be with you
Once you cut the strings that tie you down
