Why Are You Leaving

This song is by The City and appears on the album Now That Everything's Been Said (1968).

You told me that you had to go
You said you could not stay here
That being here just made you sad
For sunshine, ships and easy land
And you'd miss the pretty things you had
So what am I to tell you?
Whoa oh

Why are you leaving?
Why are you leaving?
And what's that secret sorrow that you're carrying?

You said you were not born to win
But I don't think you mean it
That you think you'd better live alone
And gather people one by one
But when each new day is done
Will you turn and face my window?
Whoa oh

Why are you leaving?
Why are you leaving?
And what's that secret sorrow that you're carrying?

As the day begins to fade
Electric lamps, they trick you
Into seeing faces on the wall
Old memories that you recall
And you're afraid you'll lose them all
And the promises they made you
Whoa oh

Why are you leaving?
Why are you leaving?
And what's that secret sorrow that you're carrying?

Why are you leaving?
Why are you leaving?
Why are you leaving?
Why are you leaving?
