It?s not easy, it?s never been easy
To let anyone, see the sentimental side of me
Hard as I try, I can't help but show
It?s my heart you're taking when you go
don't like goodbyes, tears or sighs
I'm not too good at leavin' time
I got no taste for grievin' time
Oh, no, no, no, not me
When it's farewell time, why can't I tell time?
Please take your time, don't go so fast
Slow down and make the moments last
As long as can be
