It's five o'clock this morning and the sun is on the rise
There's frosting on the window pane and sorrow in your eyes
The stars are fading quietly, night is nearly gone
And so you turn away from me and tears begin to come

And it's goodbye again, I'm sorry to be leaving you
Goodbye again, as if you didn't know
It's goodbye again and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to go?

It seems a shame to leave you now, the days are soft and warm
I long to lay me down again and hold you in my arms
I long to kiss the tears away, give you back the smile
Other voices beckon me, and for a little while

It's goodbye again, I'm sorry to be leaving you
Goodbye again, as if you didn't know
It's goodbye again and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to go?

I have to go and see some friends of mine, some that I don't know
Some who aren't familiar with my name
It's something that's inside of me not hard to understand
It's anyone who listens to me sing

If your hours are empty now, who am I to blame
You think if I were always here, our love would be the same
As it is the time we have, is worth the time alone
Lying by your side, the greatest peace I've ever known

But it's goodbye again, I'm sorry to be leaving you
Goodbye again, as if you didn't know
It's goodbye again and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to go?
