I Had to Do it

If I had another choice, I'd make it in a second
If I had a second chance, I'd take it from the start
If my heavy heart were strong enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

It's selfish and I'm sorry but you know I had to do it
And I'll miss you every second but you know it's for the best
If my weary heart were well enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me 'round

You know I never meant to go and throw away a future
I guess I can't expect to ever hear from you again
If my broken heart were brave enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

I don't want to love you anymore
I don't want to love you anymore

I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me 'round

If I had another choice, I'd make it in a second
If I had a second chance, I'd take it from the start
If my heavy heart were strong enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

I don't want to love you anymore
I don't want to love you anymore
