Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You know I'm not one to break promises
I don't wanna hurt you but I need to breathe
At the end of it all, you're still my best friend
But there's something inside that I need to release
Which way is right?
Which way is wrong?
How do I say that I need to move on?
You know we're headed separate ways

[Chorus]
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can't lie no more
I can't hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

[Verse 2]
You've given me more than I can return
Yet there's oh so much that you deserve
Nothin' to say
Nothin' to do
And I've got nothing to give
I must live without you
You know we're headed separate ways

[Chorus]
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can't lie no more
I can't hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way
