Leaving is the longest word I ever learned 
In the time it takes to say it, the whole world has turned 
If a heartbeat lasts a lifetime then I've lived before
'cause I remember standing at this open door

Even as we watch what tied us unravel 
And the tears fall like rain
 Deeper than crying, the loving still remains 

 Neither wants to be the one to say goodbye 
And neither wants to be the one who's left to cry
But in our secret heart of hearts we both know
That the time for patching up has passed and it's time to go


So I'll be the one to pull our tangled lives apart 
I won't dodge the angry words that hide a broken heart
And my calm fare-thee-wells cannot obscure
That deep inside, my heart is also hurtin' so
