Lyrics

You know some times me and my lady have these crazy fights
And when we do it makes me wonder
Are we’re ever gonna get it right

When I think about leaving I think about me
What my life would be like if I were back to being free
Go where I wanna go, do what I wanna do
Wouldn’t have a soul I had to answer to
When I think about leaving I think about me

You know I got a friend
him and his wife just couldn’t see eye to eye
He had all he could stand one day
And just packed up and said goodbye

When I think about leaving I think about him
That little apartment cross town he’s living in
Got an old corvette, got a new girlfriend
But only sees his kids every other weekend
When I think about leaving I think about him

I never will forget her face or the day she told me about her dad
How he walked out on her
And her mom when she was just a kid

When I think about leaving oh I think about her
Only five years old and her heart filled up with hurt
With her little arms wrapped around his neck
Saying daddy where you going, are you coming back
When I think about leaving I think about her

You know the truth is, most of the time things were really great
And I know we got something special
When I think about leaving I think about us
How we build this love we share on faith and trust
Honest way we talk, tender way we touch
All those nights we spent making love
When I think about leaving, I think about us

When I think about leaving I think again
Even though that thought crosses my mind every now and then
In my heart I know I would never leave
There’s nowhere else on earth I would rather be
When I think about leaving I think again

When I think about leaving
When I think about leaving
When I think about leaving:I think again
