Alexandra Leaving

  		    Suddenly the night has grown colder.       
F                          Am                          Dm          
      The god of love preparing to depart. 
C                            Bb                            F 
  Alexandra hoisted on his shoulder,          
F                    Am                     Dm         
       They slip between the sentries of the heart. 
C                                                  Bb                     F 
 Upheld by the simplicities of pleasure,     
       C                        Dm                      Bb         
 They gain the light, they formlessly entwine; 
           Gm                             Bb                      C 
  And radiant beyond your widest measure        . 
F                               Am                              Dm            
     They fall among the voices and the wine 
C                                           Bb                       F 
It’s not a trick, your senses all deceiving,    
               Bb                  C                      Dm     
A fitful dream, the morning will exhaust  
              Bb                    Gm                 C 
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.     . 
                   F              Dm             Bb         
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost 
               Gm                    C                  F 

   Even though she sleeps upon your satin;          
F                                    Am                       Dm         
     Even though she wakes you with a kiss. 
 C                                       Bb                       F 
  Do not say the moment was imagined;         
F                             Am                           Dm        
      Do not stoop to strategies like this. 
 C                                      Bb                 F 
      As someone long prepared for this to happen,      
   C                                         Dm                           Bb            
Go firmly to the window. Drink it in. 
        Gm                     Bb               C 
  Exquisite music. Alexandra laughing.              . 
F                        Am                           Dm           
    Your firm commitments tangible again 
 C                                             Bb               F 
And you who had the honor of her evening,         
                            Bb             C                   Dm             
And by the honor had your own restored 
                        Bb              Gm             C 
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving;        
                     F             Dm              Bb            
 Alexandra leaving with her lord. 
               Gm            C              F 

Even though she sleeps upon your satin;      
                                  Bb             C            Dm       
Even though she wakes you with a kiss. 
                                    Bb             C          Dm 
Do not say the moment was imagined;      
                                Bb          C            Dm       
Do not stoop to strategies like this. 
                                Gm                 C         

  As someone long prepared for the occasion;             
F                                     Am                          Dm              
       In full command of every plan you wrecked 
 C                                              Bb                     F 
  Do not choose a coward’s explanation        
F                                   Am                  Dm         
     that hides behind the cause and the effect. 
C                                              Bb                    F 
And you who were bewildered by a meaning;        
                                      Bb             C              Dm              
Whose code was broken, crucifix uncrossed 
                                        Gm                          C 
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.       
                    F           Dm                Bb          
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost. 
              Gm                          C              F 
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.        
                     F            Dm               Bb          
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost. 
              Gm                            C              F
