Before I leave, before I turn my back
I have words to say, as I do this act
The past has been unkind, it has been deceptively cruel
But I have no regrets, I have no sad tales to tell

Today we may part ways, today we left what’s been done
But please never think that I’m moving on without qualms
You will always be treasured, you will always be in my heart
The love we shared, the love we cherished, it will be remembered even if we’re apart

We both need time to think of things, to sort our disengaging feelings
To face our fears, to correct our mistakes, to accept our shortcomings
The love we had was never perfect but it is love I will never ever forget
So don’t pretend you’ll throw it out, for it will leave a feeling of regret

So please don’t lock your heart, I will come knocking soon
Leave the key in the old place that both of us knew from the moon
I am certain, I am confident that I will always be back
To claim your heart once more, to love you until we fade to black.

— The End —
