Trying to Leave Lyrics


The air smells like you 

Your hair is hanging loose

This space is full of dawn

So why does it feel like you’re already gone?
Everyone keeps trying to Leave

Take the steps til they bleed

Escape from the maze

Jump ahead a few decades
Your cries are binding me

The price is poverty

There’s no bandaid to take away your wound

If I walk way do I abandon you?
Everyone keeps trying to Leave

Take the steps til they bleed

Escape from the maze

Jump ahead a few decades
What do you think I will see?

Will you lay this on me?

How much power to try

If I’m seeing you the last time
When you’re riding on the high

It’s like you’re an angel in flight

But when the demons come and they tower over you

It’s like you can’t see me

And I don’t know you
Why do you keep trying to Leave?

Take the steps til you bleed

You can’t escape from the maze

Just hold on for a few more decades
What do you think I will see?

I won’t fuckin’ let you lay this on me

Though I have no power to try

I ain’t ready to say goodbye
