Leaving Town

Words and Music by Karl Obermeyer

For the last time I’m leaving town
Not gonna fall back asleep
Watch my dreams slowly drown
That’s the last time I bite my tongue
I say what needs to be said
Do what should’ve been done

I know it’s not only me
That carries such a load
I know you shouldn’t reveal
Things that I want to know
But if we only would take a stance
Question all that you know
And if I only should get one more chance
Well, it’s mine alone

For the last time I wear this crown
Burdens all disappear
Out of sight and with sound
And maybe I owe it all to you
You’ve shown me what I don’t need
And the changes I do
