Mary Gauthier - I Ain't Leaving Lyrics




Broken on the inside, that's what I used to say
Then I'd pack my bags, raise a white flag and drive away
I thought that's what made me strong
Well, I was young, I was wrong

And I ain't leaving any more
I'm not walking out that door
No more running away
Made up my mind to stay
I'm gonna stand my ground
Stare my demons down
I ain't leaving

I don't know when it happened
But I turned a corner somewhere on the road
And on this side of those stubborn years
Somehow, I'm not so broken any more
I pushed away what I should'a held
Yeah, but sorrow taught me well

And I ain't leaving any more
I'm not walking out that door
No more running away
I made up my mind to stay
I'm gonna stand my ground
Stare my demons down
I ain't leaving

There's still a whisper in my ear
That I'm trying not to hear
Haunted voices from my past
Promises of greener grass
Speaking to me everyday
Fighting hard to have their way

But I ain't leaving any more
I'm not walking out that door
No more running away
I made up my mind to stay
I wanna find out what it's like
To live a different kind of life
To hang around and fight
For something I believe in
I ain't leaving
I ain't leaving

Broken on the inside
That's what I used to say

    Travis Meadows is the songwriter. Which is to say that if Mary Gautier is doing his material, then he's a heavyweight. Mary is awesome whether doing her own songs or that of others :)

    I just heard this song and it brought tears to my eyes. It's so powerful. It speaks so well to shutting down out of fear, pain or habit. From self & others. Thank you. I am posting this to my page to survivors of abuse and I know many will find it powerful. Hopeful too. Thank you.
