Lyrics Could I Leave You

Leave you leave you how could I leave you how could I go it alone
Could I wave the years away with a quick goodbye
How do you wipe tears away when your eyes are dry
Sweetheart lover could I recover give up the joys I have known
Not to fetch your pills again every day at five
Not to give those dinners for ten elderly men from the UN how could I survive
Could I leave you and your shelves of the world's best books
And the evenings of martyred looks cryptic sighs
Sullen glares from those injured eyes
Leave those quips with a sting jokes with a sneer
Passionless lovemaking once a year
Leave the lies ill concealed and the wounds never healed
And the games not worth winning and wait I'm just beginning
What leave you leave you how could I leave you what would I do on my own
Putting thoughts of you aside in the south of France would I think of suicide darling shall we dance
Could I live through the pain on a terrace in Spain would it pass it would pass
Could I bury my rage with a boy half your age in the grass ha ha bet your ass
But I've done that already or didn't you know love
Tell me how could I leave when I've left long ago love
Could I leave you
No the point is
Could you leave me well I guess you could
Leave me the house leave me the flat
Leave me the Braques and
Chagalls and all that
You could leave me the stocks for sentiment's sake
And ninety percent of the money you make
And the rugs and the cooks darling you keep the drugs angel you keep the books
Honey I'll take the grand sugar you keep the spinet
And all of our friends now just wait a damn minute
What leave you leave you how could I leave you sweetheart I have to confess
Could I leave you yes will I leave you will I leave you
