Level 42 - Leaving Me Now Lyrics




It seems true love is so rare
Seems all I've known is deceit
Your laughter fills the air
Once more I'm sensing defeat

And I suppose you're leaving me now
I was so sure, now I'm so full of doubt
And I suppose you'll be leaving this place
Just like the smile you've wiped from my face
This time

I always gave my best
Your memory serves you so badly
Some people kill for less
Yet I'd still die for you gladly (so gladly)

But I suppose it's my turn now
To play a scene that's familiar somehow
I turn the page and you walk away
Not even love could bring you to stay
This time

Walk away, it's so easy

Once more I'm learning
In the depths of my despair
Your lies confirming
True love is so rare

And I suppose it's my turn now
There's no more love, only feelings of doubt
Gone with the hope your words have erased
Gone with the smile you wiped from my face

Love is a ship we all hope to steer
Through troubled times, 'cross an ocean of tears
A midnight sea that swells in your eyes
Takes just one look to know I'm still mesmerised

But I suppose you're leaving me now
I was so sure, now I'm so full of doubt
I turn the page and you walk away
Not even love could bring you to stay
This time

Leaving me now
Leaving this place

  13. cleanview70

    Should have played this at the end of S1 "You"

  14. Colin James

    80's what an era for music compared to the rubbish churned out these days, when musicians played their instruments, any wonder they are still playing these hits to crowds to this day, most of the modern day drivel will be forgotten in 5 years or less, delighted to have grown up in the 80's and have great memories!!

    I remember "Finishing" with my girlfriend of 3 years at her parents home back in 87. I walked out of the house pretty upset and got in the car and as the ignition went on....so did this ! And that is my memory of this most brilliant Level 42 song. Sadly we never got back together and even more sadly she is not with us anymore.

  15. Manuel Orlando Gomex

    105 thumbs down why ? Its a classic

  79. Chris P Bacon

    The 80’s have come & gone, but so have the 90’s, & now two decades into a new century. I now have more years behind me than ahead of me, so I have plenty of memories to reflect upon. The 80’s had everything for me, it was my golden age. I wish I could revisit for one night when everyone I loved were together & having a great time. I’d get a chance to say the things I wish I’d said back then, but the reality is I can’t. I can only relive it through memories & music like this.

  80. Brad Bill

    "A midnight sea that swells in your eyes/Takes just one look to know I'm still mesmerized..."
    God, how I miss writing like that in today's music.

  81. David Hubbert
