02. Leaving Town

by Critical Mass


Glancing through the pane,
In the September rain
I am getting far away from everything,
All the lies that you told,
All the feelings I hold,
I'm kissing them goodbye today,
That's why Iím leaving town, I'm leaving town
I donít know where Iím headed,
I'm spinning round and round
Yes, I'm leaving town,
No, you can't keep me down
I've got to go
(itís time to go)
Iím leaving townÖ

A thousand miles away
From the things that you say,
Getting closer to the place I long to be,
I was crazy when I thought I could ever be enough
I'm leaving all my fears behind
It may take a while, to see me smile
For time to scrape away all the pain
All I've got are my dreams and a prayer,
But that's enough to help me stay sane

I dreamt you're at my door
Asked you what you came here for
You're telling me that you're so sorry,
I've forgiven what you've done,
But my love's ready gone
I've moved away from you completely
Chorus (X2)

Behind the Song:
We can all grow from a painful break-up, eventually learning that dwelling on the past is unhealthy. In my case, I ended up leaving town and had to start over again on my own. My friend, Ian Tanner, introduced me to this song, and it seemed to fit my situation closely. With his permission, I changed the words to fit my situation exactly. It is the perfect portrayal of how I felt when I decided to stop being a victim and take control of my first steps to a fuller life.
