I ain't leaving Lyrics by Mary Gauthier

 

I ain't leaving by Mary Gauthier


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 and 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
On this side of those stubborn years, somehow, I ain’t so broken any more
I pushed away what I should’a held, yea, but sorrow taught me well

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

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
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
This time I ain’t leaving
Broken on the inside that’s what I used to say
