A lady stands before an open window 
Staring so far away 
She can almost feel the southern wind blow 
Almost touching her restless day 

She turns from her window to me 
Sad smile her apology 
Sad eyes reaching to the door 

Daylight loses to another evening 
And still she spares me the word goodbye 
And sits alone beside me fighting her feelings 
Struggles to speak but in the end can only cry 

Suddenly its so hard to find 
The sound of the words to speak her troubled mind 
So I'm offering these to her as if to be kind: 
There's a train everyday leaving either way 
There's a world, you know 
There's a way to go 
And you'll soon be gone, that's just as well 
This is my opening farewell 

A child's drawings left there on the table 
And a woman's silk lying on the floor 
And I would keep them here if I were able 
Lock her safe behind this open door 

But suddenly it's so clear to me 
That I'd asked her to see what she may never see 
And now my kind words find their way back to me 
There's a train everyday leaving either way 
There's a world, you know 
You got a way's to go 
And I'll soon believe, it's just as well 
This is my opening farewell
