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 think she is saying that she is is inlove with a man but it is not working out for her so instead of waiting until the man ends the realationship she will leave while she can still remember the good times and she is still inlove and will not leave bitter
