     name your price



she left town faster than I could say goodbye
sometimes it’s easier just to split
no prolonged fare thee well
no embrace, not one last kiss
when a woman has to go, a woman has to go
you can’t blame her for the world she sees
but if you find me crying when she’s gone
it’s something in the way she leaves

you may find her in coastal California
bathing in the deep blue
you may find her as the tide rolls in
you may find her love to be true
but love can be fleeting, it can be fast
love can haunt your dreams
be wary of the one I love
be wary of the way she leaves

I miss the way she would dance in the kitchen
almost like she had no where else in mind
now I see it all for what it was
and I see it what she has left behind
there are horses in the black hills of South Dakota
they are young and wild and free
when I see those horses run
they remind of the way she leaves
