LEAVING SO SOON

Leaving so soon, why are you leaving so soon?
You arrived at eleven now you're leaving at noon
If I asked you to stay, would you still go anyway?
Why are you laving so soon, why are you leaving so soon?

Leaving so soon, why are you leaving so soon?
Drove off in your touring van, drove off with my heart in your hand
What I'd do to be a fly, so I could follow you closely by
Why are you leaving so soon, why are you leaving so soon?

And though we hadn't much time
Your face is so clear in my mind
I'll hold you close to me, my friend
Until the day we meet again...

Leaving so soon, why are you leaving so soon
You looked back to catch my eye, looked back to wave good-bye
Another month, another year, don't know when you'll be back here
Why are you leaving so soon.
Why are you leaving so soon?
