LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND
( STEVE DAFOE 2007)
(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS :

G A Am5
AND THERE YOU GO AGAIN........LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND
LIKE A MILLION OTHER TIMES....YOU'RE HEADED DOWN A ROAD
AND THERE YOU GO AGAIN, THINKING I'D NEVER MIND
'CAUSE THERE YOU GO AGAIN, LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND
A Am5
LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND
A Am5
LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND

('CAUSE THERE YOU GO AGAIN, LOOKING FOR A BRAND NEW START
LIKE A MILLION OTHER TIMES, YOU GO BREAKING MY HEART)

D AM EM
ALWAYS LOOKING PAST THE MOMENT
'CAUSE YOU'RE REALLY NEVER HERE.
KEEPING ALL OPTIONS OPEN AND NEAR
Fmaj7 C
YOUR CLOTHES STILL IN THE SUITCASE
FROM THE LAST TIME YOU WENT

I SEE THE HOLLOW IN YOUR EYES
LIKE SOMETHING INSIDE JUST DIES
YOU GOT A FOOT OUT THE DOOR
Fmaj7 C
'CAUSE THERE'S SOMETHING YOU WANT MORE
'CAUSE THERE'S SOMETHING YOU WANT MORE


LOVE JUST AIN'T ENOUGH ANYMORE
I'VE LOST COUNT; THREE MAYBE FOUR?
I WATCH YOU DOWN A LONELY HIGHWAY
Fmaj7 C
AGAIN LIVIVNG DAY TO DAY.....
AGAIN LIVIVNG DAY TO DAY.....
