    Lyrics »

Well I've been tryin' to tell you
For a long time
That leavin' is the lovin' thing to do
Maybe I have hurt you
In the meantime
Exactly what I never meant to do

But I ain't comin' back
'Til you clean up your act
And get your stubborn ways out of my face (Grace)
'Cause you ain't just a mess
You're an angel in distress
But you could sing a song a thousand ways

There's all those things about you
That are sweet sunshine
But you fly me to the moon
Then you waste my dime
So I'll be movin' on
Let you get on with your song
'Cause leavin' is the lovin' thing to do

There's all those things about you
That are oh so dear
If you'd just get your pussyfootin' soul in gear
But deep down in my heart
I have loved you from the start
So leavin' is the lovin' thing to do

I said deep down in my heart
I have loved you from the start
So leavin' is the lovin' thing to do
