Verse 1

No, it's ok, you moving on is a good idea.

You aren't getting any younger each year.

And I'm sorry for the time I wasted already

Till I could figure out we'd never be steady.

Chorus

So, this is the last song I'm writing about you,

Now that you're moving on, on to something new,

Now that you've burned down my last bridge,

Now that you've closed shut my last door,

I'll finally let myself stand down from this ridge,

There's nothing holding me back anymore.

Verse 2

I wish you the happiness I could never give.

I hope you'll understand why I had to leave.

And yes, I understand why you can't wait.

We ran out of chances, I know it's too late.

Chorus

So, this is the last song I'm writing about you,

Now that you're moving on, on to something new,

Now that you've burned down my last bridge,

Now that you've closed shut my last door,

I'll finally let myself stand down from this ridge,

There's nothing holding me back anymore.

Bridge

And I hope we'll reunite in another life,

When age, time, distance won't be standing tall

Between us being man and wife.

Right now though, I really hope you find it all.

Chorus

So, this is the last song I'm writing about you,

Now that you're moving on, on to something new,

Now that you've burned down my last bridge,

Now that you've closed shut my last door,

I'll finally let myself stand down from this ridge,

There's nothing holding me back anymore.
