"Horizontal Departure" as written by Robert Plant, Robert Blunt, Jezz Woodroffe and Paul Martinez....
And you said you'd never leave me
In fact you said you'd be my only one
I said you'd never grieve me baby
For things do when you are only having fun, fun.

You said you'd cry a river
I thought you meant you'd cry a river of tears
You'd rather die than live without me baby
But little girl you're so insincere
You know you count your blessings
But now I find that you were counting sheep, counting sheep

And then I try to court your feelings
I caught your eye and then you caught my cheek
All the trees (prisoners?) must come to view (feed?) now
And there you stood so proud the apple of my eye

You said you'd never leave me baby
But little girl that's the reason why
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Let's go collect our prize now

So entertaining we were no-one no-one (number one, number one?)
The judge is hypnotized now
But after all we both fooled (bought the fool) for so damn long
So face the crowd and take a bow now, bow now
'Cause one more time and it will all be done
'Cause I must have been a show to you now baby

My next performance has just begun
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone

Oh, Stop and think for a minute baby
As they bring the curtain down
Another drink then another, maybe
The toast might not make rounds (To do so nothing rhymes?)
I chose the style, the duck and the weaving (wheel?)
We were famous for And here's to him, and here's to yours and
You can thank me for the floor (... take the floor the floor)
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone

I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another

    General CommentThe lyrics pretty much tell about an abrupt ending to a relationship where the girl leaves to be with someone else.
