Horizontal Departure
Robert Plant Lyrics


And you said you'd never leave me
In fact you said you'd be my only one
I said you'd never grieve me baby
For things do when you are only having fun, fun.

You said you'd cry a river
I thought you meant you'd cry a river of tears
You'd rather die than live without me baby
But little girl you're so insincere
You know you count your blessings
But now I find that you were counting sheep, counting sheep

And then I try to court your feelings
I caught your eye and then you caught my cheek
All the trees (prisoners?) must come to view (feed?) now
And there you stood so proud the apple of my eye

You said you'd never leave me baby
But little girl that's the reason why
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Let's go collect our prize now

So entertaining we were no-one no-one (number one, number one?)
The judge is hypnotized now
But after all we both fooled (bought the fool) for so damn long
So face the crowd and take a bow now, bow now
'Cause one more time and it will all be done
'Cause I must have been a show to you now baby

My next performance has just begun
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone

Oh, Stop and think for a minute baby
As they bring the curtain down
Another drink then another, maybe
The toast might not make rounds (To do so nothing rhymes?)
I chose the style, the duck and the weaving (wheel?)
We were famous for And here's to him, and here's to yours and
You can thank me for the floor (... take the floor the floor)
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone

I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another

When you said you'd never leave me
In fact, you said you'd be my only one
They said, you'd never grieve me baby
For things you do when you are only having fun, fun

You said you'd cry a river
I thought you meant you'd cry a river of tears
You'd rather die than live without me baby
But little girl, you're so insincere

I know you count your blessings
But now I find that you were counting sheep, counting sheep
And then I try to court your feelings
I caught your eye and then you caught my cheek

All the prisoners come to feed now
And there you stood so proud, the apple of my eye
You said you'd never leave me, baby
But little girl that's the reason why

Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone

Let's go collect our prize now
So entertaining, we were "number one, number one"
The judge is hypnotized now
But after all we both were fooled for so damn long

So face the crowd and take a bow now, bow now
'Cause, one more time and it will all be done
'Cause, I must leave the show to you now, baby
My next performance has just begun

Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone

Oh, stop and think for a minute, baby, as they bring the curtain down
Another prince and another maiden, the toast might not make rounds
I taught the style, the duck and the weave, we were famous, boy
And here's to him, and here's to yours and you can thank the blow, the blow

Whoa-oh, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa-oh, that's why you have to leave me all alone

I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another

Such an underrated song! Never on the radio, why???

11Stucat

Program Directors had no imagination and was beholden to the record companies pushing certain singles with videos on MTV

Rebecca Becker

Phil Collins ,innit ? Also love Robert singing like he used to ...Think this was originally released in early to mid '80s...He still had his raw ,sexy voice from LZ.....Oh yeah...!!

bianchi1885

I just heard this on Deep Tracks on Sirius XM. I hadn't heard this in at least 20 years. Collins, Martinez, Blunt and Plant at the top of their game here.

Morgana Rose

Great song. Love the drumming and just saw who it was..awesome
