Rooftop Balcony

from Coordinates by Monk Turner



Dry your tears and come with me
to the rooftop balcony
from this vantage you will see
a view of the old city

looking down from a place so high
you turn to ask me why oh why
why must we say goodbye
and this is what I will reply

all this will be just a memory
take one last look from this balcony

you have made up your mind
to leave this city far behind
go on do what you must do
and let go of me and you


all this will be just a memory
take one last look from this balcony


When you're where you need to be
I am certain that you will agree
that you saw what you needed to see
from this rooftop balcony
