  • 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 Writer/s: CAROLE BAYER SAGER
