Lyricist Geoff Matthews sent me the saddest sweetest set of lyrics that touched me deeply. I went into a sort of Sondheim meets Angela Lansbury and Sarah McGlachlan on a wistful night along the Moors. Add to that my own deep longings in all manners of love. Enjoy.

Lyrics:
You Left Me Just in Time- Geoff Matthews lyrics and Sonya Heller music

VERSE
I saw the moss on the railway track
And I took that as a sign.
I walked a million miles for you
But you left me just in time.

A butterfly has no sad goodbye
He lives for just one day.
No memories to contemplate
As he goes on his way.

CHORUS
On his way,
He goes on his way.
I see him float and fly,
And I think of you.
I saw the moss,
Oh it was a sign.
You left me just in time.
Just in time.

VERSE
The green leaves fall through dappled light
They rest on the lake below.
The beauty’s there but I can’t see
I have lost that sense I know.

Our wooden rail holds no fairy tale
The names are fading fast.
Nothing good has lingered here
I am alone at last.

CHORUS
Alone at last
I am alone at last.
No nothing lingers here
But I think of you.
The green leaves fall
Oh it was a sign,
You left me just in time.
Just in time.

MIDDLE
Our magic path,
Our sanctuary,
I miss you so,
Do you miss me?
I linger but I just can’t see
The beauty no more.
I lost you to,
The other side,
Where once we laughed,
Now I just sigh.
I linger but I just can’t say
Goodbye, goodbye.
I just can’t say goodbye.

VERSE
I saw the moss on the railway track
And I took that as a sign.
I walked a million miles for you
But you left me just in time.
Just in time.
