don’t turn around lyrics – neil diamond

if you wanna leave
i won’t beg you to stay
and if you gotta go, darlin’
well maybe, it’s better that way

i’m gonna be strong, gonna be fine
don’t worry about this heart of mine
just walk out that door and see if i care
go on and go now

but don’t turn around
’cause you’re gonna see my heart breakin’
don’t turn around
i don’t want you seein’ me cry

just walk away
it’s tearin’ me apart that you’re leavin’
i’m letting you go
but i won’t let you know

i won’t miss your arms around me
holding me tight, so tight, real tight
and if you ever think about me
just know that i’ll be all right

i’m gonna be strong, gonna do fine
don’t worry about this heart of mine
i know i’ll survive and i’ll make it through
and i’ll even learn to live without you

but don’t turn around
’cause you’re gonna see my heart breakin’
don’t turn around
i don’t want you seein’ me cry

just walk away
it’s tearin’ me apart that you’re leavin’
i’m letting you go
but i won’t let you know

i wish i could cry out loud
that i love you, baby
i wish i could say to you
“don’t go, don’t go, don’t go”

but don’t turn around
’cause you’re gonna see my heart breakin’
don’t turn around
i don’t want you seein’ me cry

just walk away
it’s tearin’ me apart that you’re leavin’
i’m letting you go

don’t turn around
’cause you’re gonna see my heart breakin’
don’t turn around
i don’t want you seein’ me cry

and if you want to walk away
walk away babe
i’m letting you go
so go on, go on, go on

just don’t turn around, don’t turn around
just walk away
it’s tearing me apart that you’re leavin’
i’m letting you go

don’t turn around
