leave lyrics – michael w. smith

daddy’s on the sofa, turning up another bottle to unleash when i get home
i pretend he doesn’t hit me
momma just pretends that she don’t know.
i used to think of talking
talking to my preacher
he says i should just forgive and forget.
now my baby brother just sits and recollects the same regrets.
and i just wanna leave
oh, god, please help me now, i wanna leave.
as if that’s not enough
or the new family around here
guess that’s all the reason some kids need
’cause they all call me names, and say i should just take it on the cheek.
if i’m over-reacting
why is it so cold here
why is it so cold here, in this hill
tell me i should just go kill myself?
and i just wanna leave
oh, god, please help me now, i wanna leave
and i, i just wanna leave
oh, god, please help me now, i wanna leave
oh, i wanna get out of here
oh, god, help me now, i really wanna leave,
(oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, ohh)
and i, just wanna leave
oh, god, please help me now, i wanna leave
oh, but i, i just wanna believe
oh, god, please hear me now, i wanna believe
i just need to know, that you’re really out there
tell me if you’re really out there, ’cause i believe.
