I Was Leavin'

On the side
On the bank of the river
Mozart tried to play guitar
By the cafe Flore d'Ille

We looked and heard
We laughed and ate and smiled
And the quiet nights I remember well
How we were so alone together

Cause I was leavin
I was leavin
And in ways I didn't want to go
I was leavin
So we ignored goodbye
And smiled and said hello
I was leavin

So far away
So long ago it seems
And while we looked for words to say
A monkey came along to play

The grinder smiled
The monkey knew not what he did
And passed around the cup for more
As the river flowed, and thoughts went unsaid
