"Leaving Song" as written by and Ray/crosby Stephenson....
Summer came and days grew long
Lilacs bloomed 'round Meulfront Pond
The first place I ever held his hand
Timeless walks and breathless nights
Went rushing past like geese in flight
I was praying it was never gonna end

Then the autumn leaves were blazing
Like the fireworks in July
And for a fleeting moment
That flame was in his eye
But as quickly as the colors came
They burned out of the sky

Goodbye, adios, see you later
I've gotta go, I've been holding on too long
This is my leaving song

I'll take one last look around
Pull up roots that I put down
Drive across that Hastings County Line
I'll trade a part of who I was
For a future I'm not certain of
But I'll take the best of what I leave behind

I'll miss those Sunday mornings
And those Friday football games
And the peace that comes from knowing
This place will never change
It's the reason that I'll miss it
And the reason I can't stay

Goodbye, adios, see you later
I've gotta go, I've been holding on too long
This is my leaving song

Goodbye, adios, see you later
I've gotta go, I've been holding on too long
This is my leaving song
This is my leaving song
