Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh boy

If you wanna leave, baby
I won't beg you to stay
And if you gotta go darling
Maybe it's better that way
I'm gonna be strong, I'm gonna do fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Walk out that door
See if I care
Go on and go now

But don't turn around
'Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me crying
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go
And I won't let you know, baby
I won't let you know

I won't miss your arms around me
Holding me tight
And if you ever think about me
Just know that I'm gonna be alright
I'm gonna be strong, I'm gonna do fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
I know I'll survive, yeah
I'll make it through
And I'll even learn to live without you

But don't turn around
'Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me crying
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go
And I won't let you know

I wish I could scream out loud
That I love you
I wish I could say to you
Don't go, don't go, don't go

Don't turn around
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me crying
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go

Don't turn around
'Cause you're gonna see my heart breaking
Don't turn around
I don't want you seeing me crying
Just walk away
It's tearing me apart that you're leaving
I'm letting you go

Don't you turn around
I'm proud, I don't want you to see that I'm cryin'
Don't you turn around
And then would you turn around when you're leaving
Don't you turn around
Bye bye, I don't want you to see that I'm cryin'
Don't you turn around
