Quit while you’re ahead

1.
Again I see you sobbing in the moonlight
You’d think I could forget
But somehow here I sit on top of a highrise
With a gun against my head…
Chorus:
And I saw it all coming
I predicted the crime
But even though I saw and even though I knew
I could not leave in time
And so it is I sit with a gun against my head
And a note in my pocket saying quit while you’re ahead
2.
Again I see you begging in the moonlight
You’d think I could forgive
But somehow I just turned and walked away
And I do not want to live
3.
Again I see you leaving in the moonlight
You’d think I could move on
But somehow there I stayed staring down the bare
street
That I drove you away on.
