Creative Bloomings song title

To Stay

I dated my first serious boyfriend
for four years. Actually I dated him
one year, and for the next three years,
we tried to break up, but we kept
getting back together, while
“Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover”
played in the background. Eventually,
we grew apart. He wound up in my wedding,
 but not as the groom. For the next
thirty-five years I must have thought of
more than fifty ways to leave my lover,
but there’s only one way to stay
and that’s to stay.
