Lyrics

When I come, will you run
to greet me like an old friend
or a lover, which one?
Life can be full of unhappy endings,
But we’re the ones who write the stories
We’re the ones who choose the path
And I don’t want another gory
Ending with an aftermath

So I see you in your gown.
Standing there your face is down
Wondering if I’ll come around
and love you like I used to

But I don’t want to see you cry anymore
And I don’t want to say goodbye anymore
‘Cause I love you. You know  I love you.
And I don’t want to spend another day
Watching you hang onto every word I say
Because I love you. So I release you.

Standing here, it all seems clear
There’s no need to throw away the love
with the hurt and tears.
We’re ever changing and so we meet this ending.
But go, my love, and know I’ll be here.
Take your time and heal your heart.
You deserve a happy ending.
Go and make a brand new start.

And I’ll be waiting your return.
To hear the news and all you’ve learned.
And meet the one that you’ve discerned
Loves you, like they ought to.

‘Cause I don’t want to see you cry anymore
And I don’t want to say goodbye anymore
‘Cause I love you. You know I love you.
And I don’t want to spend another day
Watching you hang onto every word I say
Because I love you. So I release you.

I don’t want to see you cryin’ anymore
I don’t want to see you dyin’ anymore
Cause I love you, sister child.
And I don’t want to spend another day
Watching you hang onto every word I say
Because I love you. So I release you,

I love you. I love you. I love you.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
