"If I Turn You Away" as written by David Foster and Richard Marx....
It won't be hard to say goodbye I've seen this road before
And I've survived through every bend
You're just a page I need to turn and I'll be on my way
For me it's over not the end.

Why should I stay and fight another lonely night?
I've got no reason to pretend.
You lied too many times and I've got too much pride
To let myself be fooled again.

So if I turn you away, it's really nothing more
Than my way to say that it's over.
If I turn you away, you'll know the reason why
I just couldn't stay anymore

Somewhere a stranger waits for me with eyes to warm my soul
His arms will hold me night and day.
You taught me everything I know 'bout breaking hearts and so
I think it's time for me to say

You've had your way too long and I've been oh so wrong
To be a fool and not be gone.
I'll tell you here and now, I'll make it through somehow
I'll find it easy to go on.

So if I turn you away, it's really nothing more
Than my way to say that it's over.
If I turn you away, you'll know the reason why
I just couldn't stay anymore

You lied too many times and I've got too much pride
To let myself be fooled again.

So if I turn you away, it's really nothing more
Than my way to say that it's over.
If I turn you away, you'll know the reason why
I just couldn't stay anymore
So if I turn you away, it's really nothing more
Than my way to say that it's over.
If I turn you away, (if I turn you away) you'll know the reason why
I just couldn't stay anymore
So if I turn you away (turn you away), it's really nothing more
Than my way to say that it's over.
If I turn you away, you'll know the reason why
I just couldn't stay anymore
