I dont' know why it should be
so hard
Givin' up this circle dance
Worn out steps from long ago
don't give love a chance

It's a bitter heirloom handed
these twisted parts we play
I'm not her and you're not him
It just comes out that way

Can't go back to make things
(though I ) wish I'd understood
time has made things clearer
We did the best we could

I'll be home soon, that's what
you'd say
And a little kid believes
After a while I learned that love
Must be a thing that leaves

I tried so ahrd just to hold you
Was as good as I could be
Even when I had you here
You stayed so far from me

Can't go back to make things
(though I) wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer
You did the best you could

Now that this has occurred to
I just wanted you to know
I've been too faithful all my life
It's time to let you go
