By your leave, I think that I'll be going now
I think I've stayed a little long
I looked up all my mother's recipes

You say it's love you want, but there is no time
I realize, I can see it in your eyes
You keep staring at the floor 

I used to look at your school photographs
But I don't have them anymore 
I wonder who's in my old college rooms
Or stuck on my old locker door

I wish that it was me, but I wake in fright 
I realize, I can see it in your eyes
I've only got myself to blame 

 Winter kisses when your lips were blue
Like chasing wild geese in the snow
 Pressing faces on the window panes
But that's a long long time ago

We go to a restaurant 
You say it's love you want
I realize, I can see it in your eyes
You're moving on to something more
