"Leaving Home Ain't Easy" as written by and Brian Harold May....
I take a step outside
And I breath the air
And I slam the door
And I'm on my way
I won't lay no blame
I won't call you names
'Cause I've made my break
And I won't look back
I've turned my back
On those endless games

I'm all through with ties
I'm all tired of tears
I'm a happy man
Don't it look that way
Shakin' dust from my shoes
There's a road ahead
And there's no way back home (no way back home)
Oh but I have to say

Leavin' home ain't easy
Oh I never thought it would be easy
Leavin' on your own
Oh is the main thing calling me back
Leavin' home ain't easy
On the one you're leavin' home

Stay my love my love please stay
Stray my love what's wrong my love?
What's right my love?
Oh leavin' home ain't easy
I thought how could I think of leavin'
Leavin' on your own
Still tryin' to persuade me that
Leavin' home ain't necessarily the only way
Leavin' home ain't easy
But may be the only way

    General CommentThe people at home don't understand you so you have to leave to figure it all out.
    It means many things, you want to go home but as they say "You can never go home again."
    Good song for going to college...

    General Commentactually i think this one is about a breakup, leaving your home and the home of a lover possibly. note it says the "one" you're leaving home, as well as the lone voice begging him to stay

    General CommentThis is my absolute favorite song that Brian May does for Queen. He has such a great voice. Easy listening. He's no Freddie.....but it still adds some variety to their music. This song is so true because it makes me think about going away for college, or leaving my parents house. The lyrics are quite simple. "Leaving home ain't easy" It's all in the title.
