Leaving and Leaving You

 When I leave you postcode and your commuting station,
When I left undone all the things we planned to do
You may feel you have been left by association
But there is leaving and leaving you.
When I leave your town and the club that you belong to, When I leave without much warning or much regret, Remember, there's doing wrong and there's doing wrong to You, which I'll never do and I haven't yet, And when I have gone, remember that in weighing Everything up, from love to a cheaper rent, You were all the reasons I thought of staying, And none of the reasons why I went And although I leave your sight and I leave your setting, And our separation is soon to be a fact, Though you stand beside what I'm leaving and forgetting, I'm not leaving you, not if motive makes the act.
