Rita Coolidge – I'D Rather Leave While I'm In Love lyrics

I'd rather leave while I'm in love
Rita coolidge

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 are never gonna end

Too many times I've seen
The rose die on the vine
Somebody's heart gets broken
Usually it's mine
I don't want to take the chance
Of being hurt again
And you and I can't say good-bye

So if you wake and find me gone
Oh baby carry you see I need my
Fantasy I still believe it's best
To leave while I'm in love

Too many times I've seen
The rose die on the vine
Somebody's heart gets broken usually
It's mine I don't want to take
The chance of being hurt again
And you and I can't say good-bye

So if you wake and find me gone
Oh baby carry on you see I need my
Fantasy I still believe it's best to
Leave while I'm in love I still believe
It's best to leave while I'm in love

    I agree totally to the above meaning. I'm in that same exact situation as that person described above. It's best to leave while you are still full of love for that man and you are leaving him because the love you have for him is unreciprocated and you realized this soon enough and to avoid being hurt so deeply with the actual goodbyes. You finally made a decision to just leave him with your love for him still intact. This is the best thing to do.

    This songs means the girl decide to leave while she's still in love with this guy coz it's better to leave staying in love rather to leave full of hatred. The girl knows it's for the best. Maybe the girl gets tired of so much hurt and she decided that it's enough she had given so much love with this guy. But in return this guy never love her coz if this guy love her he won't do anything to hurt her feelings n make her cry n make her feel insecure. If this guy really love him he will never do anything to hurt her all he must do is to make the girl feel loved, cared, respected, and secured.
