stray cats

well just last night I heard you say
you were thinking ’bout leaving me
didn’t pick an hour or a day
just that you wanted to be free
if you’re gonna go, doesn’t make much sense
to be biding your time
so pack your bags, there’s the door, if you leave now, that’s just fine

don’t try to hold on for me
don’t think you’re doing any favors letting me down gently
like a band-aid, pull it off quick, I’m ready for the pain
but when you’re going don’t pretend you’ll be coming back again

I’ve seen it coming for a while
though you tried to hide it all so well
every time you forced a smile
you were working hard, yeah I could tell
if you’re gonna go, doesn’t make much sense
to join the actor’s guild
and when I ask you if you’re going, don’t say you won’t when you will

don’t try to hold on for me
don’t think you’re doing any favors letting me down gently
like a band-aid, pull it off quick, I’m ready for the pain
but when you’re going don’t pretend you’ll be coming back again
