The Leaving

 

In the beginning you were coming on strong

By the ending you were going, going gone

It’s not the beginning or the ending but the leaving that lingers on

Its not the coming or the going but the leaving that lingers on

 

Now your waking in the morning to find her gone

The evening finds you dreaming like your stoned

It’s not the morning or the evening but the leaving that lingers on

It’s not the waking or the dreaming but the leaving that lingers on

 

And you’re remembering the times when you went wrong

Trying to find some meaning in a song

Its not the moment or the memories but the leaving  that lingers on

Not the singing or the meaning but the leaving that lingers on

From one moment we came together our lives were changed forever

Would it be any better if we never had known?

 

Now the highway is calling you back home

You get to feeling like you’ve stayed around too long

Take your heartache and keep moving on

It’s not the highway or the heartache but the leaving that lingers on

It’s not the loving or the losing but the leaving that lingers on
