Luke Combs – Even Though I’m Leaving lyrics
[Verse 1]
Daddy, I'm afraid, won't you stay a little while?
Keep me safe 'cause there's monsters right outside
Daddy, please don't go, I don't wanna be alone
'Cause the second that you're gone they're gonna know
Before he went to bed he grabbed my hand and said

[Chorus]
Just 'cause I'm leavin'
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, I know you're scared when I'm not here
But I'll always be right there
Even though I'm leavin', I ain't goin' nowhere

[Verse 2]
Dad, we'll be late, and Uncle Sam don't like to wait
He's got a big old plane that's gonna take me far away
I know I act tough, but there's a churnin' in my gut
'Cause I just can't call you up when things get rough
Before I left, he hugged my neck and said

[Chorus]
Just 'cause you're leavin'
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, I know you're scared I might be here
But I'll always be right there
Even though you're leavin', I ain't goin' nowhere

[Bridge]
Daddy, I'm afraid, won't you stay a little while?
I never thought I'd see the day I had to say goodbye
Daddy, please don't go, I can't do this on my own
There's no way that I can walk this road alone
Daddy grabbed my hand and said

[Chorus]
Just 'cause I'm leavin'
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, boy, I ain't scared
I won't be here, but I'll always be right there
Even though I'm leavin', I ain't goin' nowhere
I ain't goin' nowhere

    If you break it down into the 3 verses it’s a very beautiful circle of life story. Verse one is the son is scared of the dark and can’t sleep. Verse two is the son being called away to war and is once again scared. Verse three is the father is dying and the son is scared of what life without his dad will be like. In all three verses the father is reassuring him that even when he’s not around that everything will be alright.

    I think into goes like the kid doesn’t want him to leave like any little kid scared of monsters: then his dad is going by across the sea to fight for our nation and: the last one I think he is on husband last days about to die - great song very emotional especially for a military family - Luke Combs is absolutely amazing guy.

    With tears after listening to this song I think of my step daughters and me saying this to my husband in the hopefully far off future. He is battling cancer but we know that one day he will leave us before we’re ready to say goodbye. He tells us that when it is his time to go that he will always love us and watch over us. Yes he will always be there by our side.

    It’s not the father who is leaving to fight a war, it’s the son going and and is worried and it’s the father reassuring him that he will always be with him. “Dad, we'll be late, and Uncle Sam don't like to wait
    He's got a big old plane that's gonna take me far away
    I know I act tough, but there's a churnin' in my gut
    'Cause I just can't call you up when things get rough”
