I don't' know why it should be so hard Givin' up this circle dance Worn out steps from long ago Don't give love a chance It's a bitter heirloom handed down These twisted parts we play I'm not her and you're not him It just comes out that way Can't go back to make things right Though I wish I'd understood Time has made things clearer now We did the best we could I'll be home soon, that's what you'd say And a little kid believes After a while I learned that love Must be a thing that leaves 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
