You Gotta Do What You Gotta Do

I just got a call from my good girl today
Said she must be going on her way
There’s better things on down the line
And I’ll not try to change her mind
She seems to think we’re better off this way

   But my heart it breaks in two
   I can’t believe that it’s true
   Though I want you to stay you’re leaving anyway
   You gotta do what you gotta do

There’s times that I know I’ve not been there for you
Maybe that’s the reason for your leaving
I’ll try to keep you off my mind
’cause a girl like you is hard to find
Somehow I’ll just have to stop my grieving

I guess it would be better if I’d never known your love
Then I wouldn’t know just what I’m missing
But I’ve seen that look in your eye and now it comes as no surprise
That another’s lips soon you will be kissing
