never dreamed you’d leave in summer lyrics – joan baez

i never dreamed you’d leave in summer
i thought you would go then come back home
i thought the cold would leave by summer
but my quiet nights will be spent alone

you said there would be warm love in spring-time
that was when you started to be cold
i never dreamed you’d leave in summer
but now i find myself all alone

you said then you’d be the life in autumn
said you’d be the one to show the way
i never dreamed you’d leave in sum-mer
but now i find my love has gone away

why didn’t you stay

/ joan baez lyrics
