It's a shame for you to do me the way you did, babe
Making me put you down before I was through
You tempted me and tried me and I kept you right beside me
You ruined me for everyone but you

It's easy to love a thing so warm and soothing
That gets you through the night so tenderly
But after all these nights with you all I remember
Is forgetting just how cold your heart can be

Leaving you won't be any harder
Than walking out the door and leaving town
But I'll be leaving, knowing, surviving, you don't make me stronger
Than the weakest man who's ever turned you down

The body in that pretty dress you wore dear
Fit my shaking hand just like a glove
But tremblings for the fearful, old and crying
Getting old and sad, and scared ain't worth your love

So will you let me go just like I came, babe?
Willful, clear of mind and free to see
Clear enough to see the others like you
And mindful my will breaks so easily

Leaving you won't be any harder
Than walking out the door and leaving town
But I'll be leaving, knowing, surviving, you don't make me stronger
Than the weakest man who's ever turned you down

And leaving you won't be any harder
Than walking out the door and leaving town
But I'll be leaving, knowing, surviving, you don't make me stronger
Than the weakest man who's ever turned you down
