She lays her suitcase on the bed
I sit and watch from the floor beneath the window
I try to speak but nothing's said
I guess there are no words, no way to tell her what I want to say


Here inside her bedroom
Here inside a place I thought was safe and warm
Here inside the comfort of her own world I realize
She's already gone


She brushes the hair from her eyes
And I see a single teardrop stream down the side of her face
And as hard as I try
I can't find the words to tell her, what I need to say


Here inside her bedroom
Here inside a place I thought was safe and warm
Here inside her own world I realize


It always comes down to this
It always comes down to me never knowing how to say goodbye
It always comes down to holding back a flood of tears
As it echoes in my mind
How will she leave this time?


The telephone rings, it's her ride
And I overhear him tell her to hurry cause he's double-parked outside
She tells me she doesn't really know what to say
So she kisses me goodbye, and then turns and walks away


And leaves me inside her bedroom
Here inside a place I thought was safe and warm
Here inside her own world I realize


It always comes down to this
It always comes down to me never knowing how to say goodbye
It always comes down to holding back a flood of tears
As it echoes in my mind
How will she leave this time?
How will she leave this time?
