The Leaving - Matthews & While
From the album ‘Higher Potential’ While and Matthews

There's a well in my heart that is barren and dry now
That echoes the sound of you saying goodbye now
So why the surprise, it was clear in your eyes
Still the weight of your words pin me down like a hand
I'm falling and falling with nowhere to land

So I cover my ears - so I can't hear
And I cover my eyes - I don't want to see
`Cause it's over and done bar the leaving

So when you turn don't you dare to look back now
My steely resolve might be tempted to crack now
A crack in the wall, the first tear to fall
Then all of the others come tumbling down
God give me strength if you turn around, so I

So I cover my ears - so I can't hear
And I cover my eyes - I don't want to see
`Cause it's over and done bar the leaving

Don't say a word it might lead to another
Look too close you might see through my cover
It's all I can do, To see this day through
But how will I feel when I wake up alone
And the ghost of you lingers long after you're gone
And everything's crazy and everything's wrong
And nothing remains of whatever belonged

So I cover my ears - so I can't hear
And I cover my eyes - I don't want to see
`Cause it's over and done bar the leaving
