Leaving Love Behind

  • Although the years have changed now, and we go by different names
    I remember the sound of our roof in the rain
    And my mind goes back in time to a place so far gone
    Where the love we left behind us was still new

    We were listening to the record on the end of your bed
    Not giving thought to where it was all going
    And I wished right then and there so badly I could read your mind
    Just so I could know the things that you were knowin'

    I believe, yes I do
    The hardest part is always leaving love behind
    I believe, yes I do
    That everything we lose will be a gift in time
    But the hardest part is leaving love behind

    When it was time to say goodbye, those words came down like stones
    I admit, for so long after, it was hard to feel at home
    We would hear the highway's song shiftin' down in the night
    I was grateful that the echoes broke the quiet

    I believe, yes I do
    The hardest part is always leaving love behind
    I believe, yes I do
    That everything we lose will be a gift in time
    But the hardest part is leaving love behind

    The sun fades on me now and I miss you like words can't know
    And I missed my shot at dying young a long time ago
    It's just a lesson learned in love, it's not angry it's not sad
    Some time you have to lose somethin' to know what you have

    I believe (I believe), yes I do
    The hardest part is always leaving love behind
    I believe (I believe), yes I do
    Oh, that everything we lose will be a gift in time
    (I believe) I believe, (yes I do)
    The hardest part is always leaving love behind Writer/s: Zachry Alexander Brown, Clay Cook, Coy Bowles, Jimmy De Martini, Phillp Hanseroth, Timothy Hanseroth
