Leaving Lyrics

Artist: Indigo Girls
Album: Retrospective

Words and music Emily Saliers

Jet fuel and traffic lines
Pulling up to the delta signs
Distant shape of my hometown
Black stain where the wheels touch down

I pick up the morning news
I pass the man who's never shined my shoes
Through security and to the train
That will take me to the airplane

Count the miles on the highway
(Count the miles on the highway)
The sum of all my days
(The sum of all my days)
There's a postcard there's a call
(There's a call)
And there's a picture for your bedroom wall
(Bedroom wall)

But do you ever wonder through and through
Who's that person standing next to you
(Who's that person standing next to you)
And after all the nights apart
Is there a home for a travelling heart

But if I weren't leaving you
(If I weren't leaving, if I weren't leaving you)
I don't know what I would do
(I would do)
But the more I go the less I know
Will the fire still burn on my return
Keep the path lit on the only road I know
Honey all I know to do is go

A cup of coffee and my bags are packed
(Coffee and my bags are packed)
The same vow not to look back
(Same vow not to look back)
(If I weren't leaving)
Familiar emptiness inside
(Familiar emptiness inside)
As the distances grow wide
(If I weren't leaving)

And though I vow to memorize
(I vow to memorize)
The last look in your loving eyes
(The last look in your loving eyes)
It's here dusk and there dawn
Oh it's like a curtain getting slowly drawn

But if I weren't leaving you
(If I weren't leaving, if I weren't leaving you)
I don't know what I would do
(I would do)
But the more I go the less I know
Will the fire still burn on my return
Keep the path lit on the only road I know
Honey all I know to do is go

But if I weren't leaving you
(If I weren't leaving, if I weren't leaving you)
I don't know what I would do
(I would do)
(Leaving you)
But the more I go it seems the less I know
(But the more I go the less I know)
Will the fire still burn on my return
(Will the fire still burn on my return)
Keep the path lit on the only road I know
(Keep the path lit on the only road I know)
