The last time I saw you
You were standing by the tracks
Holding on to a vinyl suitcase
Holding back an easy laugh

Oh don't you know

Standing on that crowded train
Holding up your hands to wave
Staring at the silent faces
Holding back the falling rain

Oh, don't you know
Leaving's not always the hardest
It's knowing when to go

You knew the years would bring the changes
And to you, they seemed so aimless
Time melted all the seasons
The gentle rain, the cool breezes

Oh, don't you know
Leaving's not always the hardest
It's knowing when to go

When the alarm sounds in the morning
You know you'll have some place to go
Plans made on windy days
Are not always easy to hold

Oh, don't you know
Now you'll return here every summer
You'll watch the sun dance on the water
Pick the apples from the tree
And visit friends on bended knee

Oh don't you know
Leaving's not always the hardest
It's knowing when to go

Oh don't you know
Leaving's not always the hardest
It's knowing when to go
