EVERY TIME I LEAVE
(I LEAVE FOR GOOD)


I had to kick this nightclub scene
I drove out into the desert heat
To find my brother where he strays complete
I brought the rain with me

And if I really want to stay alive
There's a part of me that's gotta die
And my brother he's the kindest kind
Don't need to see the light

If I wanted to stay you know that I would
I don't like to be misunderstood
Every time I leave here I leave for good
I know oh I know you're not keeping track
but I keep on coming back
I keep coming back the way you said I would
Every time I leave here I leave for good

Somewhere
There's a girl I don't know her name
I get so lonely I can picture her face
I guess right now we got our separate ways
But I'm gonna marry her one day

And every age that you get in life
There's a sweet and there's an ugly side
I try to be patient for what comes in time
And thankful for what's mine

I keep on running
And I keep crawling home
But the trouble stays with me
Everywhere I go
