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
