SHE'S LEAVING

Studio version take #1


[Control room engineer (spoken):] "She's Leaving", take 1.

She's leaving, she's leaving, everybody knows
She's leaving, she's leaving, and I feel like such a fool
She left me standing here just two foot tall
I just don't know how she could do it in front of our friends and all
She had better things to do and bigger plans
I thought we could make it with just us two but I guess we can't
'Cause she can't, and I'm only one man but I love her

It's winter, suddenly it's winter, and I feel so cold inside
It's different, it could've been different, if only she didn't feel that need to lie
What's the matter, girl, didn't you think I was that strong
That you couldn't tell me what was going on
Hmm
[Spoken:] Don't remember the words (chuckles).
