This Is Me Leaving You  (Album Version)

This Is Me Leaving You (Album Version)

Mary Chapin Carpenter

This is your voice of reason
This is your voice of calm
This is your heart that's speaking
Saying the time has come
Here is your pride and grace now
Here is your strength and soul
Everything's at the ready
You're finally good to go
Now tell him there's one last thing that you forgot to do
This is me leaving you
This is me leaving you

He told you to try believing (don't you worry)
He asked you to keep the faith (or keep guessing)
He took all that you were giving (don't be sorry)
As if it all were his to take (you're progressing)
Now it's the truth that won't let go (don't you doubt it)
Now it's the facts that you can't shake (and don't fear it)
Now it's just time to let him know (each new step is)
You made a big mistake (one more near it)
Maybe these final words will offer up a clue
This is me leaving you
This is me leaving you
This is me, baby, breaking us in two
This is me leaving you

I'm your better half
Baby, that's a laugh

This is your voice of reason
This is your voice of calm
This is your heart that's speaking
Don't look back, just keep on going
This is me leaving you
This is me leaving you
This is me leaving you
This is me leaving you
