Verse 1

Do you think it's easy for me?

To chop a branch off my own tree?

But I can't stand being close and not being yours.

You know I'm jealous and so insecure.

Chorus

Gotta do what I've gotta do.

Now I need my distance from you

So that I can still be close to

Everything we once had.

Why don't you get it?

I'm not stubborn, I'm sad!

Verse 2

I'm terrified I'll wake up and

See another girl hold your hand.

But you're still ruling each of my heart beat.

You know I'm not strong enough to take it.

Chorus

Gotta do what I've gotta do.

Now I need my distance from you

So that I can still be close to

Everything we once had.

Why don't you get it?

I'm not stubborn, I'm sad!

Bridge

I'm not willing to hurt anymore.

When you walked out, I closed my door.

Chorus

Gotta do what I've gotta do.

Now I need my distance from you

So that I can still be close to

Everything we once had.

Why don't you get it?

I'm not stubborn, I'm sad!
