Martha Wainwright
Leave Behind

Leave behind the dog
Leave behind the god
Believe me when I say
There's a danger coming our way
It's been lovely traveling this way
Thanks to the sun, the moon, the night and the day

But the sea can no longer wait
The Levy's about to break
There's a child that's been built for today
And it can see only miles away

We'll follow it through the dawn and the day
And it will teach us to forget how to pray

And we'll follow behind in the ground
And the sea will be the only sound

It's been raining every day
Does this mean you're gonna stay?

And the feeling is coming around
Like we were never meant to walk this ground
And why does love forget every day
And leave me on my knees
At my own grave

It's been lovely traveling this floor
I hope your love was never too sure

Leave behind the dog
Leave behind the God
Believe me when I say
There's a danger coming our way
