about

This is about a girl leaving her faith, family and community to marry her love, a man from a different culture and country

lyrics

I’m leaving for love, leaving tonight
My eyes wide open, I’m somebody’s life
Somebody loves me more than his own
Now it’s all over, I’m going home

I’ve packed up my bags, I’m catching the bus
Moving from them and running to us
Somebody wants me just as I am
And I’ll be there with him just as soon as I can

Chorus
I’m leaving for love, leaving for life
Running for home to be somebody’s wife
Leaving for love, leaving for good
Still hoping someday it’ll be understood

I’m leaving tonight, leaving at last
Leaving the hurt to stay in the past
There’s no forgiveness outside the law
Love will stay with me this side of the door

I’m leaving my childhood of safe golden days
I’m leaving my mother and wise ancient ways
I’ll remember my father, though I won’t see his face
I’ll remember it always, I’ll remember this place

Chorus
I’m leaving for love, leaving for life
Running for home to be somebody’s wife
Leaving for love, leaving for good
Still hoping someday it’ll be understood

leaving for love,
leaving for love,
leaving for love
