Left and Leaving Songtext
von The Weakerthans

Left and Leaving Songtext

My city's still breathing, but barely, it's true
Through buildings gone missing like teeth
The sidewalks are watching me think about you
Sparkled with broken glass

I'm back with scars to show
Back with the streets I know
Will never take me anywhere but here

The stain in the carpet, this drink in my hand
The strangers whose faces I know
We meet here for our dress rehearsal to say
I wanted it this way


Wait for the year to drown
Spring forward, fall back down
I'm trying not to wonder where you are

All this time
Lingers, undefined
Someone choose
Who's left and who's leaving

Memory will rust and erode into lists
Of all that you gave me
A blanket, some matches, this pain in my chest
The best parts of lonely

Duct-tape and soldered wires
New words for old desires
And every birthday card I threw away


I wait in 4/4 time
Count yellow highway lines
That you're relying on to lead you home
