Going Off


Going off before I knew enough to try
Going off as if my heart couldn't cry
Going off and leaving me feeling like a fool

Couldn't let it start that soon
The running off scene the man always plays
Couldn't let him get away
And leaving me to wonder why he didn't stay

It hurts too much to think
I'd live a lifetime before he'd be mine
I need to hold and love him
Try just to please him
