Goodbye Again
John Denver

Goodbye Again

Its five oclock this morning, and the sun is on the rise
Theres frosting on the window pane, and sorrow in your eyes
The stars are fading quietly, the night is nearly gone
And so you turn away from me, and tears begin to come

And its goodbye again, Im sorry to be leavin you
Goodbye again, as if you didnt know
Its goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to leave

It seems a shame to leave you now, the days are soft and warm
I long to lay me down again, to hold you in my arms
I long to kiss the tears away, give you back the smile
Other voices beckon me, to go a little while

And its goodbye again, Im sorry to be leavin you
Goodbye again, as if you didnt know
Its goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to leave

Have to go and see some friends of mine, some that I dont know
Some who arent familiar with my name,
Its something thats inside of me not hard to understand
Its anyone who listens to me sing

And if your hous are empty now, who am I to blame
You think if I were always here, our love would be the same
As it is the time we have, is worth the time alone
And lying by your side, the greatest peace Ive ever known

But its goodbye again, Im sorry to be leavin you
Goodbye again, as if you didnt know
Its goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to leave
