Whitney Houston - I Bow Out Lyrics

Tired of playing this game
And I won't play it no more
And I won't take it no more
Through with being your fool
And I won't do it no more
And I won't, I won't keep up this act
Not for one minute
I'm gonna pull, I'm gonna pull this curtain down

[Chorus]
This time I won't play this game
I made a vow to make a change
And I bow out
I won't be hanging around, baby
I decline to take the pain
And I resign the masquerade
And I bow out
I won't be staying around, baby
I bow out

Can't go on with the show
You're just a stage I went through
Now you're just fading from view, yeah baby
It's time for a change of scene
Guess I'll be taking my leave
I guess I won't, I won't stay in this play
Not for one minute
I'm gonna make, I'm gonna make my exit now
Oh baby

[Chorus]

When you're left standing on that stage all alone
Maybe you will realize
You should of learned to treat me right
And when this final act is finally through
Maybe you'll wish you'd been
The kind of man you should have been
Now watch me say goodbye
And walk right out of your life
Oh baby, all right babe

[Chorus: x2]
