Tom Rush

I know your leavin's too long over due.
For far too long I've had nothing new to show to you.
Goodbye dry eyes -- I watched your plane fade off west of the moon.
It felt so strange to walk away alone.

No regrets.
No tears goodbye.
Don't want you back.
We'd only cry again.
Say goodbye again.

The hours that were yours echo like empty rooms.
Thoughts that we once shared I now keep alone.
I woke last night and spoke to you
Not thinkin' you were gone.
It felt so strange to lie awake alone.


Friends have tried to turn my nights to day.
Strange faces in your place can't keep the ghosts away.
Just beyond the darkest hour, just behind the dawn.
It feels so strange to lead my life alone.
