Leaving Came Easy – lyrics

Lay me down to rest
I can’t carry any more
No, I can’t keep looking for
Another sign above the door
For the travelling poor
It’s a funny kind of storm
Where the wind blows through my chest
When my house is bright and warm
And I’m nobody’s guest

Is it where we stay? Or where we’ve been?
No one makes a break that clean
Maybe absence is an old excuse
Who could say where the knots got loose
Leaving came easy
Leaving came easy to me

Lay me down to rest
This game I never won
The world weighed a ton
But I’m not blaming anyone
For how I’d run
To where the long night stretches
I gave it all that I had left
Turning over engines
Just to catch my breath
