    I'm going away smiling, thinking of our life
    How we were good for each other, how we knew
    When I came to you, I was all black and blue
    You just smiled and said, your love was true
    We had a great time, didn't we?
    Never knew this is how it would be..


    Now the boat is slowly leaving, leaving the life I loved
    I see you standing at the pier, trying to hide your fear
    Thank you for the memories, thank you for the laughs
    I'm going away, this time,
    Remember.. no tears
