Leaving is the longest word I ever learned
In the time it takes to say it the whole world has turned
If a heartbeat lasts a lifetime then I've lived before
Cause I remember standin' at this open door
This path is not the one I'd choose to travel
Even as we watch what tied us unravel
And the tears fall like rain deeper than crying
The loving still remains

Neither wants to be the one to say goodbye
And neither wants to be the one who's left to cry
But in our secret heart of hearts we both know
That the time for patching up has passed and it's time to go
This path is not the one...

(Instrumental: Mandolin)

So I'll be the one to pull our tangled lives apart
I won't dodge the angry words that hide a broken heart
And my calm fare-thee-wells cannot obscure
That deep inside my heart is also hurtin' so
This path is not the one...
