lyrics

When it’s over, sometimes it’s hard to walk away,
but I know if I stay I’ll only hurt you,
and I’d rather leave than lose your love.
When it’s over, it’s so hard to part without regrets,
but this is for the best.
I’ll always love you.
Still sometimes love’s just not enough.

So for now I’ve got to go.
We both know we deserve more.
Don’t cry – it’s not the end.
I’d much rather lose my lover than lose my friend.

It’s a hard thing to know if you can trust your heart
when we should be apart – you know I’m right.
It doesn’t make sense just holding on.
Yeah, it’s a hard thing to say you’re too tired to try,
and I wish I knew why some people change.
Sometimes what’s right can feel so wrong.

So for now I’ve got to go.
We both know we deserve more.
Don’t cry – it’s not the end.
I’d much rather lose my lover than lose my friend.

I need to tell you, you’ll always be my true love,
but I just need too much of what you can’t give.
Believe me, I wish it wasn’t so.
But when I tell you I love you I mean every word,
every single word, and that won’t change.
I hope with this song you’ll always know.

So for now I’ve got to go.
We both know we deserve more.
Don’t cry – it’s not the end.
I’d much rather lose my lover than lose my friend.
