Armiger, Katie - Leaving Home Lyrics




I put the locket that you gave me in a shoe box
With all my favorite High School pictures in a Ziplock
So when I think I'm by myself I know that I'm not
Thanks for the extra cash
Please take good care of Dad
And I promise you I'll call along the way

Mama, Don't you cry
I'm moving on but no this ain't goodbye
We might be miles apart but I'll carry you in my heart
I'll send you kisses on the phone
But mama, I'm leaving home

In only four months I'll be coming home for Christmas
I bet the time will fly, you know how it does
Maybe I'll go find a nice guy and fall in love
I'll do my best to make you proud
Keep my room safe for now
Just in case these big ol' dreams don't work out

Mama, Don't you cry
I'm moving on but no this ain't goodbye
We might be miles apart but I'll carry you in my heart
I'll send you kisses on the phone
But mama, I'm leaving home

We knew this day would come
And as bad as we wanna hold on
We both know it's time to let go

Mama, Don't you cry
I'm moving on but no this ain't goodbye

Mama, Don't you cry
I'm moving on but no this ain't goodbye
We might be miles apart but I'll carry you in my heart
I'll send you kisses on the phone
But mama, I'm leaving home
I'm leaving home
I'm leaving home
