When I Leave This World Behind

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Kurt Huget

Sorting through the memories of my dreams
Glimmering of sun on the mountain streams
Muses of the desert air
Moonbeams tangled in your hair

Baby when I leave this world behind
Will I finally find my peace of mind
Will the sun still shine in the skies
After you've closed my eyes

Baby, when I leave this world behind
Will there be a better world to find
When I leave this world
Baby when I leave this world
When I leave this world behind

When I try to reconstruct my past
Cataracts of memories so vast
Nothing but my love for you
Made this old world to the new

Baby when I leave this world behind
When I leave the sweetest ties that bind
When my day on earth is done
Will there be another one

Baby, when I leave this world behind
Will there be a better world to find
When I leave this world
Baby when I leave this world
When I leave this world behind

Wonder will the gears of the wheel still grind
Wonder will the blind still lead the blind
Will love still conquer all
Winter still follow the fall

Baby, when I leave this world behind
Will your memories of me be kind
When I'm no longer here to see
Will you still think of me

Baby, when I leave this world behind
Maybe there's a better world to find
When I leave this world
Baby when I leave this world
When I leave this world behind
