Track Name: Reasons To Leave
4 years slipped right through my fingers,
Cause in my memory,
You faded fast,
We faded too fast.

But I don't care,
I don't care,
You could be anywhere without me,
And nothing's been the same without you.

We were 3 years ago,
And I still see you around somedays,
You're not quite how I remember,
It must be all the sleepless nights and alcohol.

'You looked tired, you look worn out.'
'Ive been so unwell for so long now
and I honestly don't know when things will get better.'
Do things ever get better?

She looked at me and said:
'Baby please, I feel like you're leaving me.'
With sweaty palms I smiled,
And looked her straight in the eyes.
'Darling, it'll be okay, everyone leaves eventually.'

9 months on and I still feel exactly how I did that night in your bedroom,
Sitting by the window,
Sharing a cigarette,
And thinking about leaving.
