lyrics

He said he could see it in my eyes
Just like his, they had that far off shine
And one day I would know what leaving is
My daddy said to me as he walked out that last time

People like us live life with one foot out the door
Dreaming and scheming for the fortunes we might find
People like us were made to always want more
We are the leaving kind

When I turned 16 I showed mama he was right
Took her car and drove away after another fight
Never looked back, knew I had to be free
No regular dreams and wishes would ever fit me

Couldn't spend my days and nights in one place
Same streets, shops and faces would make me lose my mind
My daddy knew it and then I knew I was a hopeless case
I was the leaving kind, I am the leaving kind

So you see, its not you its me
Been a wanderer since that prophesy
You can promise me the stars, not even love will make me stay
Sorry baby, its just my way, its my way

Always lived my life with one foot out the door
Never could stay too long or leave too much behind
I was made to be looking for something more
I am the leaving kind, I am the leaving kind
