John Denver Lyrics

Goodbye Again Lyrics

It's five o'clock this mornin and the sun is on the rise
There's 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 it's goodbye again
I'm sorry to be leaving you
Goodbye again
Cause if you didn't know
It's goodbye again
And I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to go

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


Have to go and see some friends of mine, some that I don't know
And some who aren't familiar with my name
It's something that's inside of me; not hard to understand
It's anyone who'll listen to me sing

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 I've ever known
