Something's changed, it's not that I fear but
Maybe it's that I took care of you too many times
And you grew weaker for a kindness
And sometimes kindness from a friend can break a man

I can understand you sit there like a child, man
I never meant to make you cry and I'm so sorry
I'd turn the clock but tell me, tell me how can I?

You're old enough to know
You're old enough to know

Why do you shun me when I treat you with respect?
You've been my best friend, joy and happiness
But without a tender kiss sometimes
We may as well say goodbye

'Cause late at night as the cars go by
I lay here, I watch you try
To pretend you're not breaking inside
For someone to sing in your ear

I can understand when you sit there like a child and beg
Don't you?
But if you want me to stay, baby has to cry sometime
Don't be kind to me, I wanna walk away

You're old enough to know
You're old enough to know
You're old enough to know
You're old enough to know
