You know sometimes me and my lady have these crazy fights
And when we do it makes me wonder if we're ever goin to get right
When I think about leaving, I think about me
What my life would be like if I were back to being free
Where I wanna go, what I wanna do
Wouldn't have a soul I have to answer to
When I think about leaving, I think about me

You know, I gotta friend and him and his wife just couldn't see eye to eye
He had all he could stand one day and packed up and said goodbye

When I think about leavin, I think about him
That little apartment 'cross town he's livin in
Got an old corvette, got a new girlfriend
But he only sees his kids every other weekend
When I think about leaving, I think about him

I never will forget her face the day she told me about her dad
How he walked out on her and her mom when she was just a kid

When I think about leavin, oh I think about her
Only five years old and her heart filled up with hurt
With her little arms wrapped around his neck
Sayin "Daddy where ya goin? Are you comin back?"
When I think about leavin, oh I think about her

You know the truth is, most of the time things are really great
And I know we got something special

When I think about leavin, I think about us
How we built this love we share on faith and trust
The honest way we talk, the tender way we touch
All those nights we spent makin' love
When I think about leavin, oh I think about us

When I think about leavin, oh I think again
Even though that thought crosses my mind every now and then
In my heart I know I will never leave
There's nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
When I think about leavin, I think again
When I think about leavin
When I think about leavin
When I think about leavin, I think again

When I Think About Leaving
