I feel like a stranger in this home I built for you,
I can't understand this awful change
you're going through;
And lately I've been watching you
grow colder every day,
And I'd rather be gone than in your way.

I'd rather be gone than in your way,
I'd rather see someone else here in my place;
And if I decide on leaving,
my world would end today,
But I'd rather be gone than in your way.

Yes, I'd rather be gone than in your way,
I'd rather see someone else here in my place;
And if I decide on leaving,
my world would end today,
But I'd rather be gone than in your way,
Yes, I'd rather be gone than in your way.
