Explain it to My Heart (Chicago)

I understand there's no future for us here Guess, I fooled myself into thinkin' there was Now you've made it clear It will never be right, guess we knew it all along Now we've got to say goodbye And I've got to be strong So tell me one more time, how it's better for the both of us Tell me one more time, how we'll hurt each other if we stay Tell me one more time, my darlin' there's just one more thing Before you walk away Explain it to my heart, it's better that we're over now Tell me one more time, this is the way it's suppose to be Tell me that I'm better off without you, how it's better to forget about you Darlin' I understand, now won't you please explain it to my heart? Now if I try, I can see the reasons why Why we can't stay together And I might convince my mind But it's breakin' my heart to know I've got to let you go To find that I must leave behind The only love I've known Well, I can tell myself that I never really needed you I can tell myself that it's better just to say goodbye I can tell myself a thousand lies but tell me now Tell me how I do Explain it to my heart, it's better that we're over now Tell me one more time, this is the way it's suppose to be Tell me that I'm better off without you, how it's better to forget about you Darlin', I understand, now won't you please explain it to my heart? Say that I'll be better if we don't stay together Say that I'll be better off free but don't say it to me Explain it to my heart, tell me that I'm better off without you How it's better to forget about you, darlin', I understand Now, won't you please explain it to my heart? It's better that we're over now, tell me one more time This is the way it's suppose to be, tell me that I'm better off without you How it's better to forget about you, darlin', I understand Now, won't you please explain it to my heart?
