Art of Leaving

Sitting here waiting for the sun to set.
I can’t get you off my mind.
I can't fall asleep just yet
Till I know you're doing alright.
I know you’ve got your reasons
For not wanting to stay.
Couldn't focus on our love
So I knew it'd end this way.

Why did you go back to Mississippi?
You never even gave me a reason why.
Why’d you have to lie and say you miss me?
I've learned the art of leaving it all behind.

This time of year is always rough
Do you remember how we met?
I was playing covers on Broadway
And you weren't too impressed.
By the time the band played
"Gypsy Queen" 
They let me take a break
And you danced with me.

Why did you go back to Mississippi?
You know you never even gave me a reason why.
Why’d you have to lie and say you miss me?
I've learned the art of leaving it all behind.
Behind...


Why did you go back to Mississippi?
You never even gave me a reason why.

I've learned the art of leaving it all behind.
I've learned the art of leaving it all behind.
I've learned the art of leaving it all behind.
