Girl this is goodbye for us
I'm afraid there's no two ways about it
Now you say you need my love
But you'll just have to learn to live without it

So Goes Love
Don't try to understand it
Oh, so goes love
It never goes the way you planned it

When you meant the world to me
That's the time you said you didn't want me
You played around in front of me
Yeah, you did everything you could to taunt me

So Goes Love
Don't try to understand it
Oh, so goes love
And when it dies you can't disguise it

It's been said
You've made your bed
And now you'll have to lie in it
There's no denying
It's a shame
But there's really no one else for you to blame
