Sunday Songs| The Leaving Song by Mary Chapin Carpenter 

The Leaving Song
 And you see that you’re leaving

And you that you’re gone

And you see there’s no saying goodbye

All the trees in mourning

The light is late from the sun

Casting shadow on shadow down from the sky

And it’s hard not to want to turn around

And it’s hard not to want to back on down

We’re only as strong as our hearts within

Only as strong

And all you know of where the road goes

Is some place far and unknown

You would think

You would have gotten used to it all by now

But each day it just gets harder

Every journey alone

Never knowing if you’ll make it

Back home somehow

And it’s hard not to want to turn around

And it’s hard not to want to back on down

We’re only as brave as we think we are

Only as brave

And it’s hard not to want to turn it down

For some guaranteed, soul crushing

Merry-go-round

It would have driven you

Straight into the ground

Driven your down
