D* E/D G/D D G/D* D* E/D G/D
A lady stands before an open window, staring so far away.
D E/D G/D D G/D* D*
She can [G/D]almost fee[D]l the southern wind blow,  almost touching her restless
day.
[A7sus4]         She turns from her window to me, sad smile her apology
Sad eyes reaching to the door.        [G]

Daylight loses to another evening,
and still she spares me the word goodbye.
she sits alone beside me fighting her feelings,
struggles to speak but in the end can only cry.

Bridge 1:
[A7sus4]       Sudden[A7]ly it's so ha[G]rd to fi[D]nd

T[G]he sound of the words to[A] speak her troubled mind              [A7sus4]
S[G]o I'm offering these[F#m] to her as if to b[A7sus4]e kind
D* G/D* A7* D*
There's a train every day, leaving either way
There's a world[E/D] you know,        th[G/D]ere's[D] a way to go           [C/D]
A[G]nd you'll soon be gone, it[A7]'s just as well       [Bm]     [Bm/A]
[G]This is my opening farewell     [D]

Last verse:

A child's drawing left there on the table
and a woman's silk lying on the floor
I would keep them here if I were able
to lock her safe behind this open door

Bridge 2:

Suddenly it's so clear to me,
that I asked her to see what she may never see
And now my kind words find there way back to me
There's a train everyday, leaving either way
There's a world you know, You gotta ways to go
And I'll soon believe that it's just as well
This is my opening farewell
