We both know that I shouldn't be here
This is wrong
And baby it's killing me, it's killing you
Both of us trying to be strong


I've got somewhere else to be
Promises to keep
Someone else who loves me
And trusts me fast asleep


I've made up my mind
There is no turning back
She's been good to me
And she deserves better than that


It's the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
To look you in the eye
And tell you I don't love you
It's the hardest thing I'll ever have to lie
To show no emotion when you start to cry


I can't let you see what you mean to me
When my hands are tied and my heart's not free
We're not meant to be


It's the hardest thing I'll ever had to do
To turn around and walk away
Pretending I don't love you


I know that we'll meet again
Fate has a place and time
So you can get on with your life
I've got to be cruel to be kind


Like Dr. Zhivago
All my love I'll be sending
And you will never know cuz
There can be no happy ending


It's the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
To look you in the eye
And tell you I don't love you
It's the hardest thing I'll ever have to lie
To show no emotion when you start to cry


Maybe another time, another day
As much as I want to, I can't stay

(Ooh)

I've made up my mind
There is no turning back
She's been good to me
And she deserves better than that


It's the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
To look you in the eye
And tell you I don't love you
It's the hardest thing I'll ever have to lie
To show no emotion when you start to cry


I don't want to live a lie
What can I do
