That Leaving Feeling

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
i got that leaving feeling and this time it's here to stay
i've been weighing up the pulling and pushing me away
the path is just so heavy but it's something that i can't leave
and this future is so certain it pushes me to my knees
is that your heart talking or just that befuddled mind?
the people that you love they change when you leave them behind
but this road that is pulling is weared down to a thread
and if i don't start climbing pretty soon it'll be over my head

we all have dreams of leaving we all want to make a new start
go and pack that little suitcase with the pieces of our hearts
all those worries and those sorrows we can just toss them away
buy a coffee and a paper and go step onto a train
but i've been to long wondering limping around this town
with everything that is pulling is pulling me further down

go and make all your excuses and say all your goodbye's
but take a look in the mirror it's the hardest one you'll ever find
all those worries and those sorrows we can just toss them away
go and find a new tomorrow and forget about your yesterdays
go and pack your ideas and kiss your kids goodbye
leave the keys on the mail with the sadness that's in your eyes

maybe tomorrow today looks like it's bringing rain
and i'll leave everything in order don't want nothing standing in my way
there're jobs that need attending and the logs that are waiting to stock
and i'll leave everything in order don't want nothing gonna hold me back
