Hurting inside,
Simply because:
It takes a lot of strength to say goodbye,
Oh, it's so hard to do
I wonder if I'm wrong,
I thought the whole thing over
And I still can't tell you why
It's gone
Baby, I can't accept the pain
That we bring,
That we bring to each other
There's nothing to gain from hurting one another,
So I'm walking in the rain
Looking for the strength to say goodbye.

My man, I want to call you
And say it's on again
It's not like I don't love you, I don't love you any more
I thought the whole thing over
And it's not like it was before
You're gone, you're gone
Just one too many times,
You say you don't want me
And then apologize
'cause you know your love will haunt me
I hope I'm acting wisely
I'm walking in the rain
Looking for the strength to say goodbye.

No more, no more in the morning
No more, no more crisis every night
This is not a warning,
You've heard that before
Baby, I'm tired, I'm tired,
I can't take it,
I won't take it any more.

My man, I want to call you
And say it's on again
And it's not like I don't love you, I don't love you any more
I thought the whole thing over
And I still can't tell you why
It's gone
And oh, girl, I can't accept the pain
That we bring, that we bring,
That we bring to each other
There's nothing to gain from hurting one another,
So I'm walking in the rain
Oh, I'm walking
Looking for the strength to say goodbye.
Looking for the strength to say goodbye.
That's what you got me doing, baby,
But, oh, it's so hard to do,
I can't say goodbye to you.
