Rachael Yamagata – What If I Leave lyrics

Oh why don't you call
When you say you will my dear
Is it because I don't belong to you
Anymore

And why don't you come
When you say you will my dear
Do you really think it will work out wrong

Oh and you've been lost
And I've been saved
Is that what comes from giving away

Maybe in time you will come back along
To greet me

What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?

Why don't you call?
Don't you miss me at all?
Left a long long time ago
To where the weather was better
For his kind

Why won't you play?
You've gone and left your face
I may be a fool all along
But I never understood these rules

Oh and every street calls your name
A whispering ghost of neighborhood flame
Maybe in time you will wake up to find you're free

What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?

So I grow up longing for another
With the windy city left behind to my lover
Will you ever know the way I cry
You were gone that day, so you may have missed
My goodbye

Oh, and sometimes in my dreams I hear you say
"If you really care you won't go away"

What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?

What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?
What if I leave?
