Leaving This Town (Part 4)

lyrics

Foot after foot—it feels like I'm floating
my old house disappears behind me like morning
I latched that last window and shut my last door
I think I remembered the lights

now I'm leaving, leaving this town
I didn't want to go so soon
but I'm leaving, leaving this town
so you won't see me around

sometimes this life isn't what we expected
prayers don't get answered
dreams don't come true
like I never had courage to say how I loved you
so I'm leaving this note behind

as I'm leaving, leaving this town
cuz I've said all I wanted
and I've done all I hoped for
I'm leaving, leaving this town
cuz you don't want me around

now I'm leaving, leaving this town
I've seen all I wanted—I did all I could
leaving, leaving this town—cuz you don't want me around

now I'm leaving, leaving this town
I've said all I wanted
and done all I hoped for
leaving, leaving this town
cuz you don't want me around
