Lyrics

You Are Leaving Now

Written By: Wally Parke

Daylight breaks through
whispers to the world
sings a silent word
pebbles turn to pearls

Once I looked up
from where I stood
the mountain rose so high
I wondered if I could

Come to rise above
places I have known
the things that I have seen
the things that I've been shown

I thought of you then
your eyes deep and free
the heart you give away
wasn't meant for me

You are leaving now I know
you've got new places to go
I'll see you when the tall grass waves
in blue rivers that run away

Roads high and low
through the forest run
we can't take them all
can't take everyone

I'll think of you
when the wind cries
when springtime blooms
when the snow flies

You are leaving now I know
you've got new places to go
I'll see you when the tall grass waves
in blue rivers that run away

I guess its like the wind
people come and go
when you finally find them
then they're gone again

I'll see you in
all my dusty days
every long long mile
I take along the way
