If I Should Leave, to Go Away

Updated on January 27, 2017

I've got to get away, can't stay here another day,

My once happy world is simply coming apart.

If there was another way, I surely would try to stay,

Listening to the rhythmic beat, the sad beating of my heart.

Lost my job yesterday, now all I can do is pray,

Just for another chance, only a better new start.

Don't know what to do or say,

My world seems to be dark grey,

Just listening to the rhythm, the sad beating of my heart.

When will my life turn around, hear a new happy sound,

Never again will I live on the street, not smart.

Now it seems I'm heaven bound, I'm only to hang around,

Just listening to the rhythmic beat, the sad beating of my heart.

If I only had one more chance, I'd do my happy dance,

Put new clothes on my back, leave this town.

Catch a bus, train or plane, it's all driving me insane,

Just listening to the rhythmic beat, the sad beating of my heart.

I'm leaving on a truck today, seems there's no other way,

Listening to the songs to play, the words the singers say,

Now I'll never go astray, prayers are answered when we pray,

Listening to the rhythmic beat, the happy beating of my heart.

The happiest rhythm, the joyful beating of my heart,

the beating of my heart.

      Is this going to be on your album, whonu? Although sad, it has a nice rhythm.
