I tried so hard just to hold you near
Was as good as I could be

Even when I had you here
You stayed so far from me
Can't go back to make things right
Though I wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer now

You did the best you could
Now that this has occurred to me
I just wanted you to know
I've been too faithful all my life
It's time to let you go
