lyrics

I've been watching this rain bounce off my windshield
I've been staring at the missed calls on my phone
I've been sitting in my car for an hour now
'Cause I can't bare to go back home

What if I just drove away right now?
Let the rain wash away my tracks
Threw away my phone and all that I owned
Told a lie that I'll be back

That's not my responsibility
That's for you, not me

I've been watching this traffic driving past me
Heading to their husbands and their wives
They've got more courage than I do
They just get on with their lives


That's not my responsibility
That's for you, not me

I ain't proud of what I am. But I know I have to go
Damn my restless heart, damn my reckless mind. Damn me for leaving you
No matter what path I take, nothing is set in stone
So I close my eyes, leave you behind and away I go.
