The Hardest Thing

The hardest thing that I ever had to do

Was to walk away from you

And the hardest thing that I ever had to say

Was goodbye as I walked away

And I hope you know

That I had to walk away

Turn my back when all I wanted

Was to beg for you to stay

And I hope you know what I never got to say

Believe me, Babe, I wish that there'd been any other way

 

Wish I could keep your kiss in amber

Seal that moment against time

Wish I could keep that feeling with me

Pretend that you were mine

I promised her

I'd never see you again

But I'm aching for you, Baby

And I know you feel the same

And I'm hoping somehow, someday

Someone somewhere sings this song

And I'm hoping you will hear it

And knowing that I wrote it

You will somehow know I wrote it, Babe

For you

 

And I hope you know

That I had to walk away

Turn my back when all I wanted

Was to beg for you to stay

And I hope you know what I never got to say

You're in my heart for ever

Come what may

 

The hardest thing that I ever had to do

Was to walk away from you
