The Weakerthans - Left and Leaving lyrics

Your rating:
My citys 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,
thee 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, 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
that you're relying on to lead you home
that you're relying on to lead you home...
