Lyrics

"BEST TIME FOR LEAVING"

The tired old faces all look the same
& the rush of the road seems to call out your name
One day you’re looking
The next day you’re blind
They say you’ve been falling behind

You’re wishing for a change that the city won’t make
Your secrets are everyone’s news
The hearts that you’re breaking
Don’t know why you’re aching
& people just don’t have a clue

The evening that follows
The morning after it rains
Is the best time for leaving
So you better jump on that train

I’ve heard that the moonlight comes from the east
I know why the sunshine sets in the sea
When no one is looking
They can’t see you fall
& maybe they won’t miss you at all

The rhythm of angels grabs hold of your feet
& wise men all tell you to go
But if you’re afraid of
The love that you’re made of
You better stick with what you know

The evening that follows
The morning after it rains
Is the best time for leaving
So you better jump on that train

If you’re cold and tired of missing the beat
& you no longer care to make ends meet
The train keeps on going if you need to run
To get yourself out in the sun

The evening that follows
The morning after it rains
Is the best time for leaving
So you better jump on that train
