Up on a hill, here's where we begin
This little story, a long time ago
Stop to pretend, stop pretending
It seems this game is simply never-ending

Oh in the sun shine having fun, it's in my blood
I just can't help it
Don't want you here right now, let me go
Let me go go go go go go go go

Leaving just in time
Stay there for a while
Rolling in the ocean
Trying to catch her eye

Work hard and say it's easy
Do it just to please me
Tomorrow will be different
So I'll pretend I'm leaving

I feel so different now, we trained at AVA
I wish you hadn't stayed
My visions clearer now
But I'm unafraid

Flyin' over seas, no time to feel the breeze
I took too many varieties

Oh in the sun shine having fun, it's in my blood
I just can't help it
Don't want you here right now, let me go
Darling let me go go go go go go go go

Leaving just in time
Stay there for a while
Rolling in the ocean
Trying to catch her eye

Work hard and say it's easy
Do it just to please me
Tomorrow will be different
So this is why I'm leaving
