I KNEW YOU WERE LEAVING
(I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS TODAY)

© Paul Clairs 2013



…and it's alright to say what's been on your mind

It's alright to leave this troubled life behind

…and it's alright to be the one you want to be

It's alright to say your plans don't count for me


I believed in us and the way we were back then

I knew you were leaving but I couldn't tell you when

And I believed in love and it's so damn hard to say

I knew you were leaving…I didn't know it was today…


and it's alright to think that I don't really care

I know I used to drink and I was never there

and it's alright to feel like you were all alone

I know that words won't heal and you're better on your own


I believed in us and the way we were back then

I knew you were leaving but I couldn't tell you when

And I believed in love that's why it's so damn hard to say

I knew you were leaving…I didn't know it was today…
