Midge Ure – The Leaving (so Long) lyrics

I'll walk away from my town, see which way the wind blows my future - oh
Find what's before me, there must be something better
Must be something more than I've had so far
Something new, something good, something worth being put here for

So long, so long, so long

Move into the city, find myself a job with a purpose - oh
I'll work for a reason and hope that reject turns to warm self-respect
And I'll start to live, live the life that I thought would be mine from the
Day I was born

So long, so long, so long

Find myself a partner, turn my partner into a family - oh
We'll grow old together then I'll know that I can be
All that it should be and then and only then I'll know what I've had
What by rights is mine
