Take Care of Yourself - Social Distortion

Tried to love like the rest of the world
A picture perfect romance
I tried directing the play but the lines were all wrong

I tried to make the occasions ring out
I bought you diamonds and pearls
But the gift that I didn't give was that of myself

I'm sorry for what I said
Sorry for the things I didn't do
I'll say goodbye, but baby, take care of yourself

There were times I couldn't hear your side
Or put myself in your place
My relationship skills had simply run out

And when our times were good they were good
And when they were bad they were bad
I tried directing the play but the scenes were all wrong

I'm sorry for what I said
Sorry for the things I didn't do
I'll say goodbye, but baby, take care of yourself
I'll walk away, but baby, take care of yourself

And there's nothing I wouldn't do for you
To try and keep you here by my side
If there's the slightest chance I could change for you
Then I'll be here still for the long ride

I'm sorry for what I said
Sorry for the things I didn't do
I'll say goodbye, but baby, take care of yourself
[x2]
I'll walk away, but baby, take care of yourself
I'll say goodbye, but baby, take care of yourself
