Knowing When to Leave  Burt Bacharach

Go while the going is good
[F#m]Knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing
That anyone can [Am]learn, [G]Go
I'm afraid my [C]heart [G]isn't very [Bbmaj7]smart
Fly while you still have your wings
Knowing when to leave won't ever let you reach
The point of no return, Fly
Foolish as it seems, I still have my dreams
So I keep hoping [D]day after day as I [A7]wait for the man I need
[D]Night after night as I [A7]wish for a love that can [D]be
Though I'm sure that no one can tell whether [A7]wishes and hopes will be
[D]Somewhere I'm feel there is happiness [A7]waiting for[D] me
When someone walks in your life, you just better be sure he's right
'cause if he's wrong, there are heartaches and tears you must pay
Keep both of your eyes on the door, never let it get out of sight
[D]Just be prepared when the [A7]time has come, you run a[Bbmaj7]way
[G]Sail when the wind starts to[F#m] blow
[G]But, like a fool, I [F#m]don't know
[Bbmaj7]When [Gm]to l[G#7]eave.......
