The Prodigals – Leaving lyrics

That cold autumn day when I went away
To Shannon and onto the US of A
I'll never forget the look in your eyes
When I hugged you and kissed you and told you goodbye

When I looked at you knowing that I had to go
It's a pain that I prayed that you never would know
But you were too young still to understand why
Someone who loved you could bid you goodbye.

Chorus: Wherever I wander, wherever I stray
It's a piece of me now that forever will stay
It's part of me heart that is locked away
And stays with you forever.

It seemed for a moment the moment stood still
If hold it I could by the force of my will
But I turned and I left then and all I could see
Was the sight of you there and you looking at me

What once was a household was long torn apart
Now like the ocean's the rift in my heart
And I long for the day when with all of it's charms
We'll be back together with you in my arms.
