I'm ready to go and you fake a smile
All that's between us now are just 500 miles
You move closer to me, you cover your face
You grin and bear it with big grace
You tried for weeks to explain a different way
I didn't want it and now I'd rather stay

So why is it so hard to tell you that
Chorus:
I'm leaving you here and I want you to know
I'm so sorry that I hurt you
You are the best thing in my life

We kiss goodbye and we run out of time
You leave me standing there all alone with friends in line
You walk through the door, then you run back outside
You hope I'd just go for a ride (no no no)
My car is starting and I come to a desicion
I have tears in my eyes and I bring it to completion

I pull you in my arms and tell you that
Chorus

Somehow I know we'll make it to the other side
We couldn't work it out, you were the best thing in my life
Just remember when we were such fools
And so combined and always too cool
I'm gone and I wish I could touch you again
and I wish I could just call you a friend
I'd give anything

I look in your eyes and tell you that
I'm leaving you here and I want you to know
I'll never forget you and I'll visit you in my dreams
You were the best thing in my life
I loved you
