Singalong! Leaving the City by Roisin Murphy

I only recently discovered the music of Roisin Murphy and I LOVE it! I am making it a singalong basically as an excuse to look up the lyrics. (Because apparently, I need an excuse to do that?)


LEAVING THE CITY
by Roisin Murphy

Wish I was taking you with me

No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home

There's no place
No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home

I'm leaving…I'm leaving

No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home

I'm leaving…I'm leaving

There's no place
I'm leaving…I'm leaving
There's no place
No more goodbyes

No exotic country
I found my journey's end
When I found you
Don't let me go
Won't leave town
Or go around
If you say so
Won't leave you no if you say so

Can't stay always going away
Never knowing the way home
Another hour
Another day
Surely we
Will find a way somehow

We're leaving the city today
Leaving the city
Soon I will be gone
Leaving the city today
Soon I will be gone

Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving
No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home
I'm leaving
I'm leaving

No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home
I'm leaving
I'm leaving
