With pen in hand we signed our names
Today at five you'll be on that train
And you'll be free and I will be alone
If we couldn't find the love we once knew
If you think I can't make everything up to you
Ah then I'll be gone, and you'll be on your own
You'll be on your own
And tonight as I lie in that big lonely bed
And I look at the pillow where you laid your head
With my heart on fire, will I have no desire to kiss you
And to hold you?
And if you can forget all the good times we had
If you think that the good times don't outweigh the bad
Ah then let's just sign our names and I'll be on my way
I'll be on my way
