lyrics

You won’t have to touch me in the morning
You’ll no longer have to close your eyes and pretend
This house was a home you’re here but I’m alone
You’re already gone so go

The loving you is leaving me
It hurts to know it’s true
That leaving me is the loving thing to do

My ring no longer fits your finger
My smile no longer lights up your eyes
We’ve wandered down this road
And I think we both know
You’re already gone so go

The loving you is leaving me
It hurts to know it’s true
That leaving me is the loving thing to do

The loving you is leaving me
It hurts to know it’s true
That leaving me is the loving thing to do
Yes, leaving me is the loving thing to do
