In your room we sat down
You looked away I looked at the ground
I said do you still love me the same

The air stagnant and stale
My foot shook, my hands cold and pale
My eyes met yours as you answered the question

Oh I had to turn away
When you took my hand and said baby kiss me
‘Cause I, knew it was goodbye

I came to drop off your clothes
I rang the doorbell but no one was home so I
Let myself in with your keys which I left on the stairs

I turned round as I drove
Checked to make sure you weren’t on your way home
And I thought ah, maybe it all will be fine
Eyes on the road, bit my lip and tried not to cry
But it didn’t work, I knew it was goodbye
