I don't know what you found in me
I hate to say goodbye to you
but I really have to go.
Before I take my leave right now,
there’re things that you should know.

I may not have done anything
for you to wish I’d stay,
but I treasure all my time with you,
much more than I can say.

I know I’m not the kind of man
that wins a woman’s heart.
I’m probably more the type of guy
you question from the start.

But we still had our moments, dear.
You stayed and persevered.
And now I’m a much better man.
It’s all because you cared.

I don’t know what you found in me
that made us last this long,
but I will not forget you, dear.
The memories are so strong.

Now it’s time to free you, dear.
You deserve much more than me.
Remember that I love you so,
even though we couldn’t be.

I wish you all the best in life,
all the joy that life can hold.
Find love and raise a family;
find warmth to fight the cold.

You need not worry ‘bout me, dear.
I’m used to being alone.
I think that’s where I’m meant to be,
on the road without a home.

Just one more thing to tell you, dear,
it won’t be a surprise.
I cleaned out all your bank accounts.
Don’t ever say I lied.

I know it wasn’t nice to do
but think of it this way.
You never will forget me, dear,
not for one single day.

Goodbye, dear.
