So She's Leaving

Album: Den of Thieves (2005)
  • Better stop pretending
    That this is never ending
    It seems the dream is over
    If not worthy of mending
    Livin' at a stand still
    Pushin' rocks uphill
    A mountain full of feathers
    With no natural buzz kill

    Oh my girl, please don't give in
    Don't listen to your stupid friends
    I hear them goin' off again
    So she's leavin'

    Plantin' dead flowers
    In a cold October
    Cemetery blackbird
    Flyin' on over
    Where's this gonna take me?
    A mountain full of misery
    Careless abandon
    All alone and empty

    I feel love to take me home
    But she don't wanna live alone
    I'm always out on the road
    So she's leavin'

    Oh my girl, please don't give in
    Don't listen to your stupid friends
    I hear them goin' off again
    So she's leavin'

    Can't find me from on the road
    Could I whisper you a song?
    Dry your eyes the whole night long
    Take your heart before it's gone

    Well, yeah
    Oh no, no no
    Yeah yeah

    I feel love to take me home
    But she don't wanna live alone
    I'm always out on the road
    So she's leavin'

    Oh my girl, please don't give in
    Don't listen to your stupid friends
    I hear them goin' off again
    So she's leavin'
    So she's leavin'
    So she's leavin'
    So she's leavin'

    Yeah
