There were times I knew
You were special in my life

I'll get by
I can see
Did you ever love me

You and I know
And you don't want me anymore
Even try
Love is leaving
Someone else
A memory I've left behind
If I ever made you cry
It was lonely by your side
I'll be strong
Without you in my life
Through your lies
I never found your love
Is there something I could do
Is there someone else to keep you from

Love is leaving
Why should I

Love is leaving
Why should I
