With pen in hand 
You sign your name
Today at five 
I might be on that train
And you'll be free
And I'll be alone (alone)
Oh alone (alone)

If you think we can't find 
The love we once knew
If you think that I can't make 
It all, up to you
Then I'll be gone
And you'll be on your own (your own)
All on your own (your own)

And this is what I wanna know
Can you take good care of the children
Can you take them to school everyday (every every every)
Can you teach them how
To catch the fish and keep all the bullies away
Can you keep them away

And tonight as you laid 
In your lonely lonely bed
And try to tell me that when you look at that pillow 
Where I laid my head
With your heart on fire (fire)
Would you have no desire (have no desire) 
To kiss me (kiss me)
To kiss, and kiss, and kiss, and kiss, and kiss me

And if you can forget 
The good times we had
If you think don't think 
They out weigh the bad
Then sign your name
And I tell you what
I'll be on my way (my way)
My way (my way)
I'll be on my way (my way)
Yeah, I'll be on my way baby (my way)
You know I'm the one, you gonna want me back
My way (sign)
My way (sign)
You know you love me (my way)
(Sign) and you know I need somebody to love
(Sign) baby don't sign
(My way) (sign) baby don't sign
(My way) (sign) baby (my way) (sign)
(My way) (sign) baby don't sign, don't sign
