Allan Taylor - Leaving at Dawn



I'll be leaving at dawn
When the light hits the sea
When you've shaken the sleep
From your innocent eyes
Don't come looking for me

It's a good time to go
And I'll be leaving no sign
We've played out the scene
And the lies in-between
And the journey is mine

Some things must pass
And come to an end
Sometimes you know
You just have to let it go
Until it comes 'round again

And maybe sometime
From out of the blue
When you've made up your mind
To leave it behind
It comes looking for you

Oh, you loved me so dear
You even bought me a star
A diamond so fine
It could sparkle and shine
I could see from afar
When the road was too long
And the journey too far
When I thought I would break
'Cause it was too much to take
I'd hang on to that star

Some things must pass
And come to an end
Sometimes you know
You just have to let go
Until it comes 'round again

Maybe sometime
From out of the blue
When you've made up your mind
To leave it behind
It comes looking for you

I'll be leaving at dawn
When the light hits the sea
When you've shaken the sleep
From your innocent eyes
Don't come looking for me
When you've shaken the sleep
From your innocent eyes
Don't come looking for me
