Leaving

I may be leaving here too early
I may be leaving here too late
But I know I will be leaving
Cause leaving is my fate

Leaving is my fate
It’s the only state I’ve ever known
And I don’t ask whether
There’s something better than being alone

I don’t bother unpacking
My suitcase or my clothes
I keep my hands on the wheel
And my eyes on the road

Cause leaving is my fate
It’s the only state I’ve ever known
I don’t let things get too close
Cause I know I’ll have to let ’em go
Let ’em go, let ’em go

Cause leaving things behind
Is part of my state of mind
The only way to survive
Is by learning how to say goodbye

I feel steady when I’m rolling
Unsettled when I’m not
I don’t have much
But I need the things I’ve got

Cause leaving is my fate
It’s the only state I’ve ever known
If I ever dreamed of something different
I learned how to let it go
Let it go, let it go

Cause leaving things behind
Is part of my state of mind
The only way to survive
Is by learning how to say goodbye
