Knowing When To Leave
Go while the going is good
Knowing when to leave may be
The smartest thing anyone can learn, go!
I'm afraid my heart isn't very smart
Fly while you still have your wings
Knowing when to leave will never let you reach
The point of no return, fly!

Foolish as it seems
I still have my dreams
So I keep hoping, day after day
As I wait for the man I need
Night after night as I wish
For a love that can be
Though I'm sure that no one can tell where their
Wishes and hopes will lead, somehow I feel
There is happiness waiting for me

When someone walks in your life
You just better be sure he's right
'Cause if he's wrong, there's are heartaches and tears you must pay
Keep both of your eyes on the door
Never let it get out of sight
Just be prepared when the time has come
You run away
Sail when the wind starts to blow
Bul like a fool I don't know when to leave
Make It Easy On Yourself
And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself, easy on yourself
'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do
(There's) Always Something
There To Remind Me
If you should find you miss
The sweet and tender love we used to share
Love we used to share
Just go back to the places where we used to go
And I'll be there
Oh, how can I forget you
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me
I was born to love you
And I will never be free
You'll always be a part of me

When there is always something there to remind me
I'll Never Fall In Love Again
Don't tell me what it's all about
'Cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out
Out of those chains those chains that bind you
That is why I'm here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So, for at least, until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
Oh, I'll never fall in love again
Walk On By
If you see me walkin' down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by
Make believe that you don't see the tears
Just let me grieve in private
'Cause each time I see you I break down and cry
Walk on by
I just can't get over losing you
So if I should seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by
Foolish pride that's all that I have left
So let me have the tears and the sadness that you gave me
When you said good-bye
Walk on by, by
Do You Know The Way To San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I'm going back to find some peace of mind in San Jose
L.A. is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and by a car
In a week, maybe two they'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years, how quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas

I've got lots of friends in San Jose
Can't wait to get back to San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?
