Horizontal Departure

This song is by Robert Plant and appears on the album The Principle of Moments (1983).

When you said you'd never leave me
In fact, you said you'd be my only one
They said, you'd never grieve me baby
For things you do when you are only having fun, fun

You said you'd cry a river
I thought you meant you'd cry a river of tears
You'd rather die than live without me baby
But little girl, you're so insincere

I know you count your blessings
But now I find that you were counting sheep, counting sheep
And then I try to court your feelings
I caught your eye and then you caught my cheek

All the prisoners come to feed now
And there you stood so proud, the apple of my eye
You said you'd never leave me, baby
But little girl that's the reason why

Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone

Let's go collect our prize now
So entertaining, we were "number one, number one"
The judge is hypnotized now
But after all we both were fooled for so damn long

So face the crowd and take a bow now, bow now
'Cause, one more time and it will all be done
'Cause, I must leave the show to you now, baby
My next performance has just begun

Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone

Oh, stop and think for a minute, baby, as they bring the curtain down
Another prince and another maiden, the toast might not make rounds
I taught the style, the duck and the weave, we were famous, boy
And here's to him, and here's to yours and you can thank the blow

Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone

I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
