I'm Leaving lyrics

It's true I often thought of leaving
But it's you
I never stopped believing
When I was down
Your arms were open to me
When the cost of loving was free
You were much to sure to re-arrange
My love for you hasn't changed

But you have.

I'm leaving
I'm leaving

The ones you tried to keep inside
Are on the streets
You tried to hide
With walls you built
So strong and tall
No one thought
That they could fallBut the lies you put
Between the cracks
To hold us down
And keep us back
Have fallen through.


You asked
Will I
Come back to you
I just can't see that
Coming true
Like sea-birds
On a high spring tide
Whose paths can't run
Side by side
I couldn't take it
And like a sea-bird
On a winter's shore
I'm leaving.
