Lyrics
Oh baby, this time it's a good-bye
And you can be sure that I won't cry
Our love is just a faded story
I'm walking down the road
And you've just got to let me go

[Chorus]
'Cause I can't hold on
I can't hold on
I can't hold on anymore

And what was that sweet lullaby
And were all those promises just lies
Well, I was just a fool to love you
I knew it all along
I can't look down, I know I'm falling

[Chorus]

When you act the way that you do
I want to scream and shout
You keep on playing games
I walk around the block
And think maybe you'll change
But just when it seems we've got it all worked out
You start naming names
I don't believe that I was the one to blame

Any maybe next time you'll cry
When someone like me says good-bye
You'll wake up when she's gone and wonder
How you could let her go
But look at me, I'm going under

[Chorus]
