Baby stands before an open window
Looking so far away
She can almost feel the southern winds blow
Gently touching her restless day

She turns from her window to me
Sad smile her apology
Sad eyes reaching to the door

Daylight loses to another evening
And still she spares me the words goodbye
Sits alone beside me fighting her feelings
Struggles to speak, but in the end can only cry

Suddenly it's so hard to find
The sound of the words to speak her troubled mind
So I'm offering these to her as if to be kind:
There's a train everyday leaving either way
There's a world, you know
There's a way to go
And you'll soon be gone, it's just as well
This is my opening farewell

A child's drawings left there on the table
And a woman's silk lying, on the floor
I would keep them here if I were able
To Lock you safe behind this open door

Suddenly it's so clear to me
That I'd asked you to see what you may never see
And now my kind words find their way back to me
There's a train everyday, leaving either way
There's a world, you know
You got a way to go
And I'll soon believe, it's just as well
This is my opening farewell

My Opening Farewell Lyrics

translated from English to Deutsch

Jackson Browne – My Opening Farewell Lyrics

Translation in progress. Please wait...

A lady stands before an open window

Staring so far away

She can almost feel the southern wind blow

Almost touching her restless day



She turns from her window to me

Sad smile her apology

Sad eyes reaching to the door



Daylight loses to another evening

And still she spares me the word goodbye

And sits alone beside me fighting her feelings

Struggles to speak but in the end can only cry



Suddenly it's so hard to find

The sound of the words to speak her troubled mind

So I'm offering these to her as if to be kind:

There's a train everyday leaving either way

There's a world, you know

There's a way to go

And you'll soon be gone -- that's just as well

This is my opening farewell



A child's drawings left there on the table

And a woman's silk lying on the floor

And I would keep them here if I were able

Lock her safe behind this open door



But suddenly it's so clear to me

, Die ich hatte fragte sie zu um sehen, was sie möglicherweise nie sehen,
und jetzt meine Worte ihren Weg zurück zu mir
es ist ein Zug täglich verlassen oder so
es eine Welt finden ist, Sie wissen
du so hast Art 's
gehen und glaube ich werde bald – es genauso gut
ist dies ist mein Abschied Eröffnung
