When you leave
Just have the decency to go
When you move on
Don't call me up to let me know
When your life runs on fast enough it will leave you behind

The sudden moments when you feel the need to go
The someone else's
There's no need to let me know

When you leave me, just turn out the nightlights and let me go

When you leave
Please sense the need to be unkind
When you move on
Don't leave a note for me to find
When your life runs on fast enough it will leave you behind

And we won't sleep apart this wind will set you free
And you wont break this heart it's strong enough you see

When you leave me, just turn out the nightlights and let me go

The sudden moments when you feel the need to go
The someone else's
There's no need to let me know

When you leave me, just turn out the nightlights and let me go

    General Commentbeautiful song =] obviously about someone who's significant other is leaving them. they don't really want them to go.. so they don't want the constant reminders that they're gone.
