You know sometimes me and my lady have these crazy fights
And when we do, it makes me wonder if we're even gonna get it right

[Chorus:]
When I think about leaving, I think about me
What my life would be like if I were back to being free
Where I wanna go, what I wanna do
I wouldn't have a soul I'd have to answer to
When I think about leaving I think about me

You know I've got a friend and him and his wife just couldn't see eye to eye
He had all he could stand one day and just packed up and said "goodbye"

[Chorus:]
When I think about leaving I think about him
And that little apartment 'cross town he's living in
Got an old Corvette got a new girlfriend but he only sees his kids every other weekend
When I think about leaving, oh I think about him

I never will forget her face on the day she told me about her dad
How he walked out on her mom when she was just a kid

[Chorus:]
When I think about leaving, oh I think about her
Only five years old and her heart filled up with hurt
With her little arms wrapped around his neck
Saying "Daddy where you goin'? Are you comin' back?"
When I think about leaving, oh I think about her

You know the truth is most of the time things are really great
And I know we've got something special

[Chorus:]
When I think about leaving, I think about us
How we're building this love we share on faith and trust
The honest way we talk, the tender way we touch
All those nights we spent makin' love
When I think about leaving, oh I think about us

[Chorus:]
When I think about leaving, oh I think again
Even though that thought crosses my mind every now and then
In my heart I know I would never leave
There's nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
When I think about leaving, I think again

When I think about leaving
When I think about leaving
When I think about leaving, I think again
