The Girl I Left Behind Me lyrics

You told me not to try and tie you down
So, I just took my place and hung around
You always said that you must be free
Well you couldn't see you were loosing me
And messing up the one good thing we had

I'm going out the same way I came in
The game is over now I couldn't win
Down inside I'm feelin' like
But this time girl I won't be back
And years from now I'll turn around and see
The girl I left behind me

I told myself that things would be okay
You would come around to my way any day
As time went on you just stayed the same
No you, you couldn't change or be rearranged
I'm picking up the pieces of my life

Well I'm going out the same way I came in
The game is over now I couldn't win
Down inside I'm feelin' like
But this time girl I won't be back
And years from now I'll turn around and see
The girl I left behind me

Well I'm picking up the pieces of my life
Well I'm going out the same way I came in
The game is over now, I couldn't win
Down inside I'm feelin' like
But this time girl I won't be back
And years from now I'll turn around and see
The girl I left behind me
