(Peter Allen / Carole Bayer-Sager)

I'd rather leave while I'm in love
While I still believe the meaning of the word
I'll keep my dreams and just pretend
That you and I were never meant to end

Too many times I've seen the rose die on the vine
Somebody's heart gets broken
And usually it's mine
I don't wanna take the chance of being hurt again
And you and I can't say goodbye

So, if you wake and find me gone
Oh, babe, just carry on
You see, I need my fantasy
I still believe it's best to leave while I'm in love, ooh

Too many times I've seen the rose die on the vine
Somebody's heart gets broken, yeah
And usually it's mine
I don't wanna take the chance of being hurt again
And you and I, we can't say goodbye

So, if you wake and find me gone
Hey, babe, just carry on
You see, I need my fantasy
I still believe it's best to leave while I'm in love, oh, oh
I'd rather leave while I'm in love
