If I Leave

Album: What Separates Me from You (2010)
  • Let's go
    In the beginning I was upfront
    Nothing to think about, you'd always hear me out
    We made a pact and never gave up
    When everything would change we'd always stay the same
    Something went wrong along the way
    You come around and there's nothing left to say
    Its like we're strangers anyway
    What more could you ask of me

    It's been a long time coming
    But everyone's going to hear me out

    If I leave bet you'll wish I stayed
    Make you regret all the things you said to me
    You know that time can't help us now
    If I leave this, if I leave this way

    I've always been a man of action
    Never let anything keep a hold of me
    Could always tell when somethings missing
    Like I knew everything, except for you and me
    I can't make you want to stay
    Our love is not that strong
    But broken in our way
    I still gave it everything
    I guess I'll never catch my break

    It's been a long time coming
    But everyone's going to hear me now

    If I leave bet you'll wish I stayed
    Make you regret all the things you said to me
    You know that time can't help us now
    You know that time can't help us now
    If I leave I'll move away
    And try to right all the wrongs we ever made
    Won't let your problems weigh me down
    If I leave this, if I leave this way

    Never thought I'd be the last one standing
    Never thought that we would come this far
    You'll always be there looking over my shoulder
    I've come to terms with exactly what we are

    Never thought I'd be the last one standing
    Never thought that we'd come this far
    You'll always be there looking over my shoulder
    I've come to terms with exactly what we are

    If I leave bet you'll wish I stayed
    Make you regret all the things you said to me
    You know that time can't help us now
    You know that time can't help us now
    If I leave I'll move away
    And try to right all the wrongs we ever made
    Won't let your problems weigh me down
    If I leave this, if I leave this way

    Never thought I'd be the last one standing
    Never thought that we would come this far
    You'll always be there looking over my shoulder
    I've come to terms with exactly what we are
    If I leave this, if I leave this way Writer/s: Chad Everett Gilbert, Jeremy Wade McKinnon, Alexander Thomas Shelnutt, Kevin Skaff, Neil S Westfall
