You Won’t Even Say Good-bye

He wants forever
He want to raise up a family of his own
But your love is fair weather
And he'll be the last one to know

You won’t be staying
You’ll disappear like a wish into the well
Never explaining
'cause you’re not so fond of farewells

It only takes one cloudy day
One drop of rain
To make you steal away and hide
And you won't even say good-bye

Back when I knew you
Back when our young hearts were keeping time
I couldn’t see through you
I thought you would always be mine

But now I know better
Just like a rabbit, If there’s trouble, you’ll run
And as I remember
Your love was just a moment in the sun

'cause it only takes one cloudy day...

You packed up your things
And took off your ring
I still wonder why

It only takes one cloudy day
One drop of rain
To make you steal away and hide
Every time you change your mind
'cause you won't ever stand and fight
And you won't even say good-bye
