I wish I could say I didn't want you anymore
I'd ask you to stay, but you're almost out the door
Now you can't deny I put up a better fight
Than every boy before, so won't you just stay the night?
You say goodbye, and I'm afraid it's meant
But I'm still trying to fix what's left
Now I sit and pray the sea will wash me away with the tides
Because your mind's been made, and I just can't say goodbye
If I asked you today to just run away with me
Would you turn around, walk away, or would you answer my plea?
As my heart is carried off to the West
I try to just smile and wish you the best
Now, I hope Colorado treats you well
You can forget about this boy, have some new tales to tell
But I'll still be here, writing you songs
I've got nothing left to do, now that you're gone
