lyrics

I must confess it wasn’t my best
But baby, you know that I tried
I won’t lament the years that we spent
There’s no use in weeping and crying

We’ve run out of time I’ve made up my mind
Don’t try to beg me to stay
Leaving today hurts me to say
It’s better, it’s better this way

Better this way than keep saying sorry
Better this way than keep hanging on
Better this way then someday my darling
We’ll be okay, it’s better this way

We can’t pretend this isn’t the end
It ended a long time ago
Let’s raise a glass, toast to the past
And all of the joy that we’ve known

See you around it’s a small town
And you’ll be with somebody new
Politely we’ll smile knowing the while
Oh that baby, I’m still loving you

Better this way than keep saying sorry
Better this way than keep hanging on
Better this way and then someday my darling
We’ll both be okay, it’s better this way
We’ll be okay, it’s better this way
We’ll not regret ‘cause it’s better this way
