You said I could never make it without you,
But I’m here to tell you that’s simply not true.
I’ll admit I’ll still love you, and yet, you should know
I’ll still do just fine if you ever go.
Because the world won’t stop turning if you ever leave.
I may take it hard, but still I believe
That the rains will still fall,
And girl you will find
I’ll be here to answer your call
If you change your mind.
Here lately I’m seeing that look in your eyes,
And I know you’re practicing all your best lies.
So if you’ve decided to go your own way,
Then darling, there’s only one thing I can say.
You can tell me it’s over. I’ve heard it before,
And yet we both know that you’ll come back once more.
Don’t worry about me if I cross your mind,
For although I’ll be lonely, I’ll be doing just fine.
