LEAVING
Indigo Girls


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 wha
