Goodbye to you my summer love,
I hope you remain a friend of mine,
But it was right for us to part,
Come back to me in the wintertime,

See your love is a seasonal gift,
I only get it once a year,
And when its done you scurry away,

For your flower blooms once a year,
But I've a Rose for each season,
I hope you find what you need,
Find Pleasure In Leaving

But I'll return to you when all else fails,
And my life is devoid of hope,
For if the devil is in the details,
Then your love is a microscope,

I'll take a pen, and let out this rage,
That which spills, will fill the page,
Its fallen to ruin, and there's no use deceiving,
Have you found Pleasure In Leaving?

For you and Conor, made a happy boy,
But you built it on faith, and I've stopped believing,
Did you find what you were looking for?
Then where was the Pleasure in Leaving?
