Make it easy on yourself
Darling, [Incomprehensible]

I used to think that we were always gonna be in love
But I was so naive back then I wasn't wise enough
To know there ain't nothing in this life that's guaranteed
You take your chances when you let your heart lead

And heaven knows how much I wanted to keep loving you
You let me down when you said some things that were untrue
So I'm giving you up 'cause there ain't enough love in this world
To change my mind, we're out of time, the dream is over

I've got my reasons for the way that I feel
Suffered in silence when I had to conceal
My honest emotions, truth must be revealed
Might not be right but I've just got to be real

We could go on forever never really letting go
What's the sense in that when in our hearts we knew
This isn't working, we're on a dead end road
Don't think my back can stand the weight of the load

And while it's hard for me to admit we made a mistake
I can't pretend no more, it's too much to take
Time for moving on, I said all I have to say
Won't live a lie, this is goodbye, the dream is over now

I've got my reasons for the way that I feel
Suffered in silence when I had to conceal
My honest emotions, truth must be revealed
Might not be right but I've just got to be real

And as I walk away though I'm leaving with tears and regrets
There are memories of you I will never forget
But it's time for me to do what my heart tells me to
I have to be strong but right or wrong, I'll always love you

I've got my reasons for the way that I feel
Suffered in silence when I had to conceal
My honest emotions, truth must be revealed
Might not be right but I've just got to be real

I've got my reasons for the way that I feel
Suffered in silence when I had to conceal
My honest emotions, truth must be revealed
Might not be right but I've just got to be real

I've got my reasons for the way that I feel
Suffered in silence when I had to conceal
