Music and Lyrics by Julian Fleisher

lyrics

So many reasons. So many tries.
So many seasons of Nos and Goodbyes.
So naturally I'm wondering just how it's done.
How'd you finally manage to run from "The One."

How hard I paddled. How hard I tried.
Just to get pulled back to you in a rip tide.
All those swimming lessons at the YMCA,
Learning how to get to shore but now how to just get away.

Leaving the leaving, leaving the leaving to you.
Oh, you. Because you'll do whatever you gotta do.

What's so amazing, what's very "you"
Is the dependable way that you come through.
While others talk and talk about how they're moving on,
You're pulling up your anchor and you're sailing off into the dawn.

Leaving the leaving, leaving the leaving to you.
Oh, you. Because you'll do whatever you gotta do.
Lleaving the leaving, leaving the leaving to you.
Oh, you. Because you'll do whatever you gotta do.

Don't get me wrong! Though I sound mad
I wrote this song, 'cause I'm glad. 'Cause I'm...

Are you unhappy I'm not upset
To see you sailing off into the sunset?
You always said that leaving should be easy to do.
Well it was even easier leaving the leaving to you.

So I'm leaving the leaving, leaving the leaving to you.
Oh, you. Because you'll do whatever you gotta do.
Leaving the leaving, leaving the leaving to you.
Oh, you. Because you'll do whatever you gotta do.
