So suddenly awake.
No light from yonder window breaks, no crowing cock,
Just my old clock, please make it stop.
I try to wrestle free,
But like the dew she clings to me,
"No way Jose, you don't get away that easily".
Leaving today, leaving today, leaving today.
"Release me let me go.
I love you more that you could know.
All I can do is promise to come home to you".
I tip-toe from the bed
And put my head around the nursery door to say good-bye.
It breaks my heart every single time.
I'm leaving today, I'm leaving today, I'm leaving today.
I would stay if you asked me, so for God's sake don't ask me to stay.
My taxi has arrived. Good-bye sweet simple life, good-bye.
The city's waking up.
Dreams fizzle out like raindrops racing down the glass.
They blur the street-lamps as we pass.
