A Better Man    (1989)

What do you say when it's over?
I don't know if should say anything at all.
One day you're rolling in the clover,
The next thing you know you take a fall.

But still I think about the years since I first met you,
And the way it might have been without you here.
I don't know if words from me can still upset you,
But I just have to make this memory stand clear.

I know I'm leaving here a better man
For knowing you this way.
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can.
I'm leaving here a better man.

I guess I always knew I couldn't hold you
But I'd never be the one to set you free
Just like some old nursery rhyme your mama told you
You still believe in some old meant-to-be

Still I'm leavin' here a better man
For knowin' you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can
And I'm leavin' here a better man

Yes I'm leavin' here a better man
For knowin' you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I know I can
And I'm leavin' here a better man

Yes I'm leavin' here a better man
