I'm goin' to leave you someday.
But today is not the day.

You told me if I didn't like
The way you lived your life.
I was free to go and find somebody new.
So walked to the door again
Turned around and walked back again.
There's nobody in the world for me but you.

I'm gonna leave you someday
But today is not the day.
When that day will be I can't say.
I'll try again tomorrow
Tried it yesterday.

I'm goin' to leave you someday.
But today is not the day.

Instrumental

The suitcase is packed to go
Everyother day or so.
But the frontdoor's the only place
It's never been.
I bought the thing brand new
But It's worned out for being used.
Carryin' to the door and back again.

I'm gonna leave you someday
But today is not the day.
When that day will be I can't say.
I'll try again tomorrow
Tried it yesterday.

I'm goin' to leave you someday.
But today is not the day.

I'm goin' to leave you someday.
But today is not the day.

I'm goin' to leave you someday.
But today is not the day. ....(fading)
