Leaving the old city

This hard summer day and I’m sitting in a cab
so much contained within this heart but nothing to gab
changing my life without changing my heart
is probably a perfect recipe for another disaster
the unanswered question that keeps lingering on in my mind
“Will I ever be able to forget you?”
passing through the trees and memorable roads
life with it’s so many folds!
we two are the repelling magnetic poles
the ones who are always cold
there’s nothing to learn from this history that’s too old
so it’s best for both of us to let distance and silence fill the gap
I’m leaving the old city
for the love that I need is not found here
I’m leaving the old city
the cool winds, the flowers and the trees
going somewhere to live without you
I’m leaving the old city
that’s the end to the story, the ditty
Leaving the old city
those roads, those places
where life lived once with it’s grace

All the mountains, all the lakes
the waterfalls, the parks, the dales
seem to be sorrowful for me
all my friends and all the people
have tried their best to convince me
but the one who can make me change my mind
doesn’t care about what I’ve in my mind
my beloved is one of a kind, quite unkind
remembering every moment from my spring smile
to the lonely autumn miles
the only question that my heart keeps asking with every beat
“Will I ever be able to live without you?”
like yesterday, even today I don’t have a clue
passing through a church nearby and blue lake on a road
it’s best my life’s story never gets told
there’s nothing to learn from this history that’s too old
so it’s best for both of us to let distance and silence fill the gap
I’m leaving the old city
for the love that I need is not found here
I’m leaving the old city
the winter rains, the butterflies and sparrows
going somewhere to live without your shadow
I’m leaving the old city
that’s the end to the story, the ditty
Leaving the old city
those roads, those places
where life lived once with it’s grace
