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
