Lyrics

If I have to go will you remember me
will you find someone else while I'm away
there's nothing for me in this world full of strangers
it's all someone else's idea
I don't belong here and you can't go with me
you'll only slow me down

until I send for you don't wear your hair that way
if you cannot be true I'll understand
tell all the others you'll hold in your arms
that I said I'd come back for you
I'll leave my jacket to keep you warm
that's all that I can do

if I have to go will you remember me
will you find someone else while I'm away
