Luke Combs - Even Though I'm Leaving Lyrics

Daddy I'm afraid, won't you stay a little while?
Keep me safe 'cause there's monsters right outside
Daddy please don't go, I don't wanna be alone
'Cause the second that you're gone they're gonna know
Before he went to bed he grabbed my hand and said

Just 'cause I'm leavin'
It don't mean that
I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me
In the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, I know you're scared
When I'm not here
But I'll always be right there
Even though I'm leavin'
I ain't goin' nowhere

Dad, we'll be late, and Uncle Sam don't like to wait
He's got a big old plane that's gonna take me far away
I know I act tough but there's a churnin' in my gut
'Cause I just can't call you up when things get rough
Before I left he hugged my neck and said

Just 'cause you're leavin'
It don't mean that
I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me
In the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, I know you're scared
I might be here
But I'll always be right there
Even though you're leavin'
I ain't goin' nowhere

Daddy I'm afraid, won't you stay a little while?
I never thought I'd see the day I had to say goodbye
Daddy please don't go, I can't do this on my own
There's no way that I can walk this road alone
Daddy grabbed my hand and said

Just 'cause I'm leavin'
It don't mean that
I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me
In the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay boy, I ain't scared
I won't be here
But I'll always be right there
Even though I'm leavin'
I ain't goin' nowhere
I ain't goin' nowhere
