  • I've been around for you
    Been up and down for you
    But I just can't get any relief
    I've swallowed my pride for you
    I've lived and lied for you
    But you still make me feel like a thief

    You got me stealing your love away
    'Cause you never give it
    Peeling the years away
    And we can't relive it
    Oh, I make you laugh
    And you make me cry
    I believe it's time for me to fly

    You said we'd work it out
    You said that you had no doubt
    That deep down we were really in love
    Oh, but I'm tired of holding on
    To a feeling I know is gone
    I do believe that I've had enough

    I've had enough of the falseness
    Of a worn-out relation
    Enough of the jealousy
    And the intoleration
    Oh, I make you laugh
    And you make me cry
    I believe it's time for me to fly

    Time for me to fly
    Oh, I've got to set myself free
    (Time for me to fly)
    And that's just how it's got to be
    I know it hurts to say goodbye
    But it's time for me to fly

    Oh, don't you know it's time for me to fly
    Oh, I've got to set myself free
    (Time for me to fly)
    Oh, babe, that's just how it's got to be
    I know it hurts to say goodbye
    But it's time for me to fly
    It's time for me to fly
    It's time for me to fly
    (It's time for me to fly)
    It's time for me to fly
    (It's time for me to fly)
    It's time for me to fly
    (It's time for me to fly)
