You have chosen dawn to leave

Don't bother me while I am sleeping

Life continues and though you go out

I'll sleep another hour or so

Though you think that I am fragile

I'm a river and I'll travel on whether you are here or not

You're not the only thing I've got

So turn the light off when you leave

Don't forget to leave the key

You know I'm going to miss your touch

You say that you can't help that much

But I would have loved to see you try

It's not that we committed sins

We wouldn't know where to begin

We just love different things in our lives

I love you and you loved time

Now that my time has gone

You have risen like the dawn

And you kissed me as if once we part

I might die of a broken heart


Though I will not try to change your mind

Believing what you left behind

is a child who is lost confused

as a consequnce of loving you

I will not try to call your bluff

The truth would hurt you far too much

I'm sorry I got left behind

But now you're gone I feel fine
