Paddy Casey – Leaving lyrics
Sun comes up and life goes on its way
But inside these walls, they are taking yours away
And there in the dawn's calls, drifting out over it all
You are lying in the shadows ‘neath the window
And you are leaving

This long day is gonna test your heart again
And though you are just a boy, they will hurt you as a man
And they will come again to see, if they can steal your dignity
And leave you naked and bleeding in the doorway
But you are leaving

And what they just don't really see
Is that you are already free

And I know that you feel, that your time, it is not long
There is maybe just enough, for this one last song
So there in the cold night, you close your eyes and you take to flight
And you are singing in the darkness ‘neath the window
And you are leaving

Your words escaped, through the cracks in the wall
Just like birds they flew and they move above it all
So there in the cold night, you close your eyes and you take to flight
And you are hoping through the gaps in the steel
And you are leaving

And what they just don't really see
Is that you are already free
And what they just don't really see
Is that you are already free
