Only When You Leave
----------------------------------

Laying in the afterglow
I only want to learn what you know
But now you're leaving.
How many hearts must you break?
How many calls must I make?
But now you're leaving. 

In this world, all that I choose
Has come unbearable.
But love is in your touch.
Oh, it's killing me so much. 

Only when you leave 
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone,
I'm just a little fool enough to need you,
Fool enough too long.
Only when you leave 
You'll leave in danger,
Oh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger,
And take this soul away. 

I only want to make things last,
So how could this have gone so fast;
And now you're leaving.
How many times must I learn,
It's only when you've gone that I burn;
Now you're leaving. 

In the end, all that is left
Has come unbearable.
It's hard to change your mind,
So leave it all behind. 

Only when you leave 
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone,
I'm just a little fool enough to need you,
Fool enough too long.
Only when you leave 
You'll leave in danger,
Oh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger,
And take this soul away.
