My Opening Farewell - Lyrics by Bonnie Raitt


Lyrics
Baby stands before an open windowlooking so far awayhe can almost feel the southern winds blowgently touching his restless day
He turns from his window to mesad smile his apologysad eyes reaching to the door
Daylight loses to another eveningstill he spares me words goodbyesits alone beside me fighting his feelingsstruggles to speak but in the end can only cry
Suddenly it's so hard to findthe sound of the words to speak his troubled mindso I'm offering ease to him as if to be kind
There's a train every dayleading either waythere's a world you knowthere's a way to go
I soon believe it's just as wellthis is my opening farewell
A child's drawings left there on the tableand a woman's silk is lying on the floor
I would keep them here if I were ableto lock you safe behind it's open door
Suddenly it's so clear to methat I'd ask you to see what you may never seenow my kind words find their way back to me
There's a train every dayleading either waythere's world you knowgot a way to go
I soon believe it's just as wellthis is my opening farewell
This is my opening farewell.
