The sound of your voice the touch of your skin
If we go there it will start all over again 
So don't even call there's no need for checking in
If it's really over let it just be over

Or having lunch from time to time
I won't ask about your family  Please don't ask me about mine
This is never what I wanted 
And it's killing me to say
It just has to be this way

We gave all we could we fought the good fight 
But no matter how we loved we just couldn't get it right 
It hurts to let go but it's harder hangin' on
I don't want it to be over we know that it's over


And even if I change my mind
Don't let me hurt me one more time
Stay away from me be as cold as you can be


Just has to be this way
Oh, it just has to be this way.
