when you leave lyrics – falcongate

son, could you take all the weight off my shoulders now
i’m in pain, i can hear your voice but not make out the words,
i confuse the pictures of the past.
so much i have missed, how could i have put you
through this? and all the years have p*ssed…

and when you leave now, you will have to promise me that
you won’t look back, because it won’t be me anymore.
no it won’t be me.

i could not bear to see another day of your decline
overwhelmed and afraid, i left you behind
i was kept away by my shame – i let you down
now i get what i deserved all this time,
and all these years p*ssed by

and when you leave now, you will have to promise me that
you won’t look back, because it won’t be me anymore.
no it won’t be me.

dear father it’s alright i hold your hand, i’m by your side
when i let go, you will have to, too.
the pain subsides
just close your eyes

and when you leave now
someday they’ll understand
someday, someday…
