Well when you go
Sarah turned her back on Gerard, who was stirring in his sleep. She started rolling her suitcase down the empty hall with one hand over her stomach and tears rolling down her cheeks.
Don't ever think i'll make you try to stay
Gerard woke up and noticing Sarah missing looked frantically for her. But when he entered the hallway all he could do was stare as her back turned on him for the last time.
And maybe when you get back I'll be off to find another way
Sarah walked down the stairs remembering the past 3 years, she hurt inside as she left her life with Gerard, she kept asking herself why would she do this? This was all her fault.
And after all this time that you still owe you're still the good-for-nothing I don't know
Gerard kept wondering why she would leave. They seemed happy together. This was unexpected but Gerard knew he could live without her- even though he thought Sarah was his true love.
So take your gloves and get out, better get, while you can
Sarah kept going, tears streaming down her face, knowing there was no turning back now. Gerard was awake and she was gone- this would be the end for sure. She wasn't ready, she was in despair, but she had to take the consequences of what she had done.
When you go, would you even turn to say
Gerard could only hold still, he knew his place and this was not his battle to fight.
I don't love you, like I did yesterday
Sarah loved Gerard with all her heart or so she'd thought. She thought she could forgive herself too. Apparently she was good at fooling herself.
Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading so sick and tired of all the needless beating
Gerard could feel his knees go weak, he stared out the window at the night, he knew she wasn't coming back- he didn't know if he wanted her to- it would hurt too much.
But baby when they knock you, down and out, it's where you ought to stay
Sarah kept herself from going back- he didn't need her, not right now- not with another man's child... Sarah could feel her vision blur but she knew she deserved this- after Gerard had been there for her when her mother passed or when she had cancer- it didn't seem right for her to do this.
And after all the blood that you still owe, another dollar's just another blow
Gerard could feel his heart break in two but to go after her would be futile- she didn't want him- she hadn't for a long time and he knew it. He couldn't bear to lose her though.
So fix your eyes and get up, better get up, while you can
Sarah quickened her steps, she didn't want Gerard to find her and she didn't want to be persuaded to come back. She knew that this was the end of the road as she reached the front door.
When you go, would you even turn to say, I don't love you, like I loved you yesterday. Well come on, come on.
Gerard started down the stairs, maybe if he caught her in time she would explain. Maybe she wouldn't leave him like this, broken and alone.
When you go, would you have the guts to say, I don't love you, like I loved you yesterday
Sarah could hear the steps down the stairs but still she opened the door, running out into the rain, and then she started up the car. She didn't want to see him break, she would know it's all her fault. She pressed her foot down on the pedal, and she knew she wouldn't stop.
I don't love you like I loved you yesterday
Gerard saw the door open and knew he had missed her, her car was gone from the driveway and the rain fell in the entry. The house was quiet, madness had won. Gerard shut the door, and turned the lights on, hurting more and more. He called up Frank and heard the phone ring as it echoed in the halls.
