She said please, won't you get off my back?
Can't you see that I'm in pain?
You know I will never
let you pull me back in again.
A lot of things have changed lately;
it's not up to you to save me.
There's no turning back
this is it--I'm on a one-way track
not looking back.

So won't you please
forget about me?
Let me be.
Don't try to save me.

But it would be a lie if I told you I
do not miss her.
Her eyes and her smile and the words she used to whisper.

But the lord only knows how much I have prayed,
and the lord only knows about my lonely days,
and you coulda been mine, and I coulda been yours--

So won't you please
forget about me?
And let me be;
don't try to save me.

Just go ahead
go ahead
Just go ahead
go ahead

But it would be a lie if I told you I do not miss her.

    General Comment"But it would be a lie if I told you I do not miss her. Her eyes and her smile and the words she used to whisper." Pretty much the way I've felt after every failed relationship. Why has no one else commented on this gorgeous song?

    General CommentThis song is so beautifully simple. I love it. I think everyone has or will feel like this at least once in their life. And if not, they're lucky.
