Let Me do this One Thing Right

If you give me just a moment, I’ll speak my peace and then I’m gone.

I won’t ask for anymore than that, I know I’ve done you wrong.

That’s just the reason that I’m here because that I’ve nothing else to say,

But I have to get it out before I finally go away.

You always helped me when I needed it, you pushed me through the pain.

That’s a favor I never did return, for that I’m sorry all the same.

But I know that it’s far too late for that, remorse would do no good,

So let me help you in the only way I know I ever could.

I’m giving back your freedom as I’m walking out the door.

I’m not leaving out of spite but because I love you now even more.

I only want what’s best for you, I know now what that is

You deserve someone that’s better and I know that I’m not it.
