Lyrics

Just tell me that we’re through

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
‘Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

And if the way I hold you
Can’t compare to his caress
No words of consolation
Will make me miss you less

My darling, if this is goodbye
I just know I’m gonna die
So run to him
Before, before you start to cry

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
‘Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

Make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
‘Cause breaking up is so very hard to do
Breaking up is so very hard to do
