I've always said someday
I was gonna leave you.
Some April when all the land is wet.
Some spring, summer, fall or maybe winter.
I'll leave someday but I'm not ready yet.

I know I should of left the day
I knew your love was dyeing.
But I passed up every date
That I ever set.
But I know I'll leave
When my heart tells me it's ready.
But I'm still around, but I'm not ready yet.

(Spoken)
Yah know I must have left you
A hundred times but you don't know that.
'Cause I was afraid you'd laugh
When you found out just how far I'd get.
But you didn't, and you don't.
I know you aint gonna ever.
And someday I'll go, but I'm not ready yet.

I know I should of left the day
I knew your love was dyeing.
But I passed up every date
That I ever set.
But I know I'll leave
When my heart tells me Lord willing
But I'm still around, but I'm not ready yet.
But I'm still around, 'Cause I'm not ready yet.
