  • I know your eyes are burnin'
    But try and hold it in
    Don't let him see you cryin'
    Don't give that much to him
    Don't tell him that you love him
    Or that you're sorry one more time
    Or get on your knees, beg and plead
    Tryin' to change his mind

    If he's gonna go, let him go
    If he wants to leave, let him leave
    If he's gonna walk, he's gonna walk
    He'll only leave you better off

    So go on and get that suitcase
    And help him pack it up
    Girl, you ain't losing nothin'
    You don't need his kind of love
    Don't watch him as he's goin'
    It'll break your heart again
    And don't stand there waitin' with the door wide open
    Hoping he'll walk back in

    If he's gonna go, let him go
    If he wants to leave, let him leave
    If he's gonna walk, he's gonna walk
    He'll only leave you better off

    You're gonna find someone who'll love you like he should have
    And when you finally feel the difference you'll be so glad
    You gave yourself the chance to move on
    You'll wonder why it took you so long
    And why you wasted so much time on him

    Yeah, if he's gonna go, let him go
    If he wants to leave, let him leave
    Oh, if he's gonna walk, he's gonna walk
    He'll only leave you better off
    Yeah, he'll only leave you
