lyrics

That’s Why I’ve Got to Leave

I can’t undo the things I’ve done
I can’t right all the wrongs
And I can’t hide all secret desire
So I wrote you this song

And I can’t stop drinking and I can’t stop thinking
Bout what the future will be
But I’m walking in circles as slow as a turtle
And I fear that I’ll never be free

Can’t you see
What’s happening to me
I came here to tell you that I’ll always love you
And that’s why I’ve got to leave

That night at the car when things went too far
We laid there so still for so long
And we knew it was right but we held that inside
Til both of us said we’d done wrong

Can’t you see
What’s happening to me
I came here to tell you that I’ll always love you
And that’s why I’ve got to leave (2 x)

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodnight, sleep tight
Goodbye, goodbye

Instr

Can’t you see
What’s happening to me
I came here to tell you that I’ll always love you
And that’s why I’ve got to leave (2 x)
I came here to tell you that I’d never hurt you
And that’s why I’ve got to leave
