It's Time To Go

  • When the dinner is cold and the chatter gets old
    You ask for the tab
    Or that moment again, he's insisting that friends
    Look at each other like that
    When the words of a sister come back in whispers
    That prove she was not
    In fact what she seemed, not a twin from your dreams
    She's a crook who was caught

    That old familiar body ache
    The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul
    You know when it's time to go

    Twenty years at your job, then the son of the boss
    Gets the spot that was yours
    Or tryna stay for the kids when keepin' it how it was
    Will only break their heart worse

    That old familiar body ache
    The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul
    You know when it's time to go

    Sometimes givin' up is the strong thing
    Sometimes to run is the brave thing
    Sometimes walkin' out is the one thing
    That will find you the right thing
    Sometimes givin' up is the strong thing
    Sometimes to run is the brave thing
    Sometimes walkin' out is the one thing
    That will find you the right thing

    Fifteen years, fifteen million tears
    Beggin' 'til my knees bleed
    I gave it my all, he gave me nothing at all
    Then wondered why I left
    Now he sits on his throne in his palace of bones
    Prayin' to his greed
    He's got my past frozen behind glass
    But I've got me

    That old familiar body ache
    The snaps from the same little breaks in my soul
    I know when it's time to go

    Sometimes givin' up is the strong thing
    Sometimes to run is the brave thing
    Sometimes walkin' out is the one thing
    That will find you the right thing
    Sometimes givin' up is the strong thing
    Sometimes to run is the brave thing
    Sometimes walkin' out is the one thing
    That will find you the right thing
    That will find you the right thing
    And you know in your soul
    You know in your soul
    When it's time to go

    And you know, you know, you know, you know
    When it's time to go
    So then you go
    Then you go
    You just go
