They tell me that you are going away
What makes you want to leave?
You gave me your love and you gave me your vow
Now you're leavin' me here to grieve

Live and let live, don't break my heart
Don't leave me here to cry
I never could live if we should part
Tell me you don't mean goodbye

Stayed awake last night and I walked the floor
What makes you treat me so?
Live and let live, don't break my heart
I don't want to live if you go

You're the one who's made me love you so
You're the one who's makin' me cry
You're the one who'd break my heart if you go
Tell me you don't mean goodbye
