Leave, I'm not gonna stop you (Stop you...) But before you go, hurt me so I can forget you Say it wasn't love, say I was a fool Anything to tear me apart Why do you care? Why do you smile? Why are you holding me now? Kiss, kiss, kiss Kissing you one more time before... You walk out that door Wishing behind these lips, "Oh baby, please stay" (Please stay) Letting go of me, looking at the street Thought I could handle this moment But your love was good, so, so-so good And it's too much to lose Miss, miss, miss Missing you as you turn around Walking out that door My heart is crying out, "Oh baby, don't go" (Don't go) No, I won't tell you so Or that I love you, no... I'm gonna let you go Goodbye...

Song Production Information
This song, which has a very ballad-like sound, was originally made for Dance Maniax 2ndMIX.
I came up with the song's motifs by playing the piano and singing along.
Also, out of all the songs in my HYPER EUROBEAT series, it's the only one that hadn't been in beatmania.
There's also an unreleased version sung by one of my mainstay vocalists.
There may be a day where I unveil it somewhere.
