"Knowing When to Leave" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
Go while the going is good
Knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing anyone can learn
Go

I'm afraid my heart isn't very smart
Fly while your still have your wings
Knowing when to leave will never let you reach the point of no return
Fly

Foolish as it seems
I still have my dreams
So I keep hoping, day after day as I wait for the man I need
Night after night as I wish for a love that can be
Though I'm sure that no one can tell
When a wish is a hope
Somehow I feel there is happiness just waiting there for me

When someone walks in your life
You'd just better be sure he's right
'Cause if he's wrong there's are heartaches and tears you must face
Keep both of your eyes on the door and never let it get out of sight
Just be prepared when the time has come, you run away

Sail when the wind starts to blow
But like a fool I don't know when to leave
When to leave
When to leave
When to leave
