"Leavin'" as written by and Tom Higgenson....
You're doin' it again, you know
Sometimes I don't even know who you are
And I don't think you know how bad it hurts
'Cause you don't have to see the scars

If you knew how bad you made me feel
You'd never do a thing like this again
But if it's just a game you're playing
I don't think I'll make it to the end

I don't think I'd last that long
Baby, I'm not that strong
So if you care about me you've gotta stop acting this way

Or I'm leavin' today
I'll say goodbye to my favorite face
Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
And be treated, I won't be treated this way

At times I think I love you
And at times I know I've finally found the one
But it's times like this that make me feel
The game of love has only just begun

You know I'd never leave
But making threats to you could be the only way
I love everything about you
But when I'm in doubt then something's gotta change

    General CommentThis song so reminds me of me. Caught within brutal honesty. I thought so many could be so strong. the tears I see I know I'm wrong. Time for alittle change of pace, a little of thats saving grace. I'd love to make you feel good abit. But how do you bandage a wound you cannot see unless you open it up. Shorterm comfort becomes useless favor to those who heal for years. A pat on the back, sorry for you jack. feels good but did I make him think, options past,options present,options future. Jack did you learn something or are you just crying

    General Commenthaving to leave... not because you want to... but because you know that in the end whatever happens its always gonna just be pain for the two people... at least one is in love with the other... the song could work whether the love is unrequited or just painful...

    General CommentI dont think that it will be pain for the two people in the end... i think it is just painful for him because he loves her and he puts up with what she wants... I think that he loves her, and she doesnt love him back as much or at all.... WELL, thats just what i think

    General Commentthe lyrics are wrong...

    You're doing it again you know
    Sometimes I don't even know who you are
    And I don't think you know how bad it hurts
    'Cause you don't have to see the scars
    If you knew how bad you made me feel
    You'd never do a thing like this again
    But if it's just a game you're playing
    I don't think I'll make it to the end

    'Cause I don't think I'd last that long
    Baby, I'm not that strong
    So if you care about me
    You've got to stop acting this way

    Or I'm leavin today
    I'll say goodbye to my favourite face
    Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
    And be treated, I won't be treated this way

    At times I think I love you and at times
    I know I've finally found the one
    But it's times like this that make me feel
    The game of love has only just begun
    You know I'd never leave, but making threats
    To you could be the only way
    I love everything about you
    But when I'm in doubt
    Then something's got to change

    'Cause I don't think I'd last that long
    Baby, I'm not that strong
    So if you care about me
    You've got to stop acting this way

    Or I'm leavin today
    I'll say goodbye to my favourite face
    Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
    And be treated, I won't be treated this way

    'Cause I don't think I'd last that long
    Baby, I'm not that strong
    So if you care about me
    You've got to stop acting this way

    Or I'm leavin today
    I'll say goodbye to my favourite face
    Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
    And be treated, I won't be treated this way

    Or I'm leavin today
    I'll say goodbye to my favourite face
    Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
    And be treated, I won't be treated this way

    Or I'm leavin today
    I'll say goodbye to my favourite face
    Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
    And be treated, I won't be treated this way
