Goodbye Again (John Denver) [chorus]
It's five o'clock this morning and the sun is on
the rise. There's frosting on the window pane
and sorrow in your eyes. The stars are fading
quietly, the night is nearly gone, And so you
turn away from me and tears begin to come.
And it's goodbye again, I'm sorry to
be leaving you. Goodbye again, as if
you didn't know, It's goodbye again,
and I wish you could tell me Why do we
always fight when I have to go?
It seems a shame to leave you now, your lace is
soft and warm. I long to lay me down again and
hold you in my arms. I long to kiss the tears
away, give you back the smile, But other voices
beckon me, and for a little while.
I have to go and see some friends of mine, some
that I don't know, And some that aren't familiar
with my name. It's something that's inside of
me, not hard to understand, It's anyone who'll
listen to me sing.
And if your hours are empty now, who am I to
blame? You think if I were always here, our love
would be the same. As it is the time we have is
worth the time alone, Lying by your side, the
greatest peace I've ever known.
