I Love You (But I'm Leaving) - Lyrics

Close your eyes and count to ten.
Take a minute, breathe it in.
Watch it mixing with the wind outside your window
like salt into the ocean

Back to wear I belong
Pedal down, a brand new song
Take one off to try one on 'cause there's no secret
to this life.

I love you but I'm leavin'.
I hope you figure out one day
what it is you're needin'
but if you can't help yourself, I can't make myself stay.

Every little chord and tone
Ring 'em out stick by stone.
I know it used to be my home. It's far behind me
and I'm not lookin' back.
No, not even a second glance.
Water over dirty hands
and though it doesn't make much sense right now
I'll let it just work out in the end.

I love you but I'm leavin'.
I hope you figure out one day
what it is you're needin'
but if you can't help yourself, I can't make myself stay.

and though I don't owe an explanation,
you're kind of like sittin' too close to a fire.
I know a few feet would make it better
but this chair's so heavy, it's late, I'm gettin' tired.
But long gone are the days where I stand by and wait
for you to just burn out or burn me up.
So this is goodbye.

I love you but I'm leavin'.
I hope you figure out one day
what it is you're needin'
but if you can't help yourself, I can't make myself stay.
