Leavin' Again


The girl on the swing likes the feel of the wind
She's laughing as she soars into the sky
She swings a little higher when mamma says it's time to go
Back on the ground the girl she starts to cry

Ten years pass she's leaving home
In her daddy's old car, the top is down
She waitresses when her money's low
Never stays one place for long...before

She's leavin' always leavin' again
Nothing can make her stay
Not a lover not a friend
She's leavin' always leavin' again
Not much to say
She likes the feel of the wind....as she's leavin' again

Love caught her once on a windy day
He was no travelin' man he couldn't live that way
But she let him hold her tight
And for a while it felt just right
But she was restless with some hazy dream
Of traveling the world and feeling no pain
Her lover's eyes were mirrors too clear
What she saw repelled her, the things he held so dear

She's leavin' always leavin' again
Nothing can make her stay
Not a lover not a friend
She's leavin' always leavin' again
Not much to say
She likes the feel of the wind....as she's leavin' again

Leaving started to show on her face
Wrinkles spoke of the choices she'd made
'Leaving never used to bother me' she said
But leaving used to be so easy
Her childhood home was around the bend
But she never saw that swing again
She lost control going way too fast
I wonder was it joy of pain that she was feeling last

She's leavin' always leavin' again
Nothing can make her stay
Not a lover not a friend
She's leavin' always leavin' again
Not much to say
She likes the feel of the wind....as she's leavin' again
