Carole Bayer Sager — I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love lyrics

(Carole Bayer Sager/Peter Allen)
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
And 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 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

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 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
I'd rather leave while I'm in love
