It's old enough to try and tie you down
So, I just couldnt place and hung around
You always said that you must be free
Well you couldnt see you were losing me
And messin' up the one good thing we had

And now Im goin' out the same way that I came in
The game is over now, I couldnt win
My heart is all I have to pack
And this time girl I won't be back
And years from now Ill turn around and see
The girl I left behind me

I told myself that things would be okay
It come around to my way any day
As time went on you just stayed the same
No, you couldnt change or be rearranged
Im pickin' up the pieces of my life

And now Im goin' out the same way that I came in
The game is over now, I couldnt win
My heart is all I have to pack
And this time girl I won't be back
And years from now Ill turn around and see
The girl I left behind me

As time went on you just stayed the same
No, you, you couldnt change or be rearranged
Im pickin' up the pieces of my life

And now Im goin' out the same way. I came in
The game is over now, I couldnt win
My heart is all I have to pack
And this time girl I won't be back
And years from now Ill turn around and see
The girl I left behind me
Behind me, behind me
