You Be the Leaver -Jim Cuddy

I saw your note
Your missin’ coat
And I didn’t understand completely.
Then later on,
Cryin’ on the phone
You said you need to change the scenery.

Took my breath away
You know I can’t pretend, that it couldn’t end
But it was never on my mind.
So you be the leaver, I’ll be the left behind.

I won your heart,
From the start,
You told me nothin’ lasts forever.
Then day-by-day,
I watched you fade
Til’ we were hardly seen together.

I can’t explain,
Oh, well I guess I knew, as the shadows grew
But there was always so much time.
So you be the leaver, I’ll be the left behind.

Oh it’s not much more,
Then I felt before,
Find out on my own.
But strange to find,
When I look in your eyes,
No one I had known.

Interlude

I hear your name,
Know where you been.
I don’t know how I feel about it.
Comfort comes,
And friends bring love.
You know I wrap my arms around them.

You made it so.
Oh, can you tell me true, no matter what I do
Did you always know the time?
When you’d be the leaver, I’d be the left behind.

Oh, you’d be the leaver. I’d be the left behind.
