"Leave Right Now" as written by and Francis Anthony Eg White....
I'm here, just like I saidâ?¦
Though it's breaking every rule I've ever made.
My racing heart is just the same;
Why make it strong to break it once again?
And I'd love to say â??I doâ??;
Give everything to you.
But I could never now be trueâ?¦

So I say,
I think I'd better leave right now
Before I fall any deeper.
I think I'd better leave right now;
Feeling weaker and weaker.
Somebody better show me how
Before I fall any deeper.
I think I'd better leave right now.

I'm here, so please explain
Why you're opening up a healing wound again.
I'm a little more careful,
Perhaps it shows.
But if I lose the highs,
At least I'm spared the lows.

Now I tremble in your arms
What could be the harm
To feel my spirit calm?

So I say,
I think I'd better leave right now
Before I fall any deeper.
I think I'd better leave right now;
Feeling weaker and weaker.
Somebody better show me how
Before I fall any deeper.
I think I'd better leave right now.

I wouldn't know how to say
How good it feels seeing you today
I see you've got your smile back
Like you say, you're right on track
But you may never know why
Once bitten, twice as shy.
If I'm proud, perhaps I should explain:
I couldn't bear to lose you again.

So I say,
I think I'd better leave right now
Before I fall any deeper.
I think I'd better leave right now;
Feeling weaker and weaker.
Somebody better show me how
Before I fall any deeper.
I think I'd better leave right now.

Yes, I will.
I think I'd better leave right now;
I'm feeling weaker and weaker.
Somebody better show me how
Before I fall any deeper

I think I'd better leave right now.

    General CommentThis is Will Young's best song to date, in my opinion. It's a really sweet love song but it's also quite sad in a way, too. It's about knowing when to let go of someone you love very much even though you don't want to.
    I'm not a Will Young fan, but i don't mind him and this is a good pop song.

    General CommentI have to say, I do like this song. I'm not really a Will Young fan. But this song did particularly strike a cord with me.
    Describes perfectly how despite this person hurting you before you have previously kept going back for more. You finally realise that you to leave, in order to save yourself from this happening again.

    General Commenti think this song is about loving someone and knowing they make you happy. but you have to let go or else you will get hurt again so u have to leave before you fall deeper and deeper in love with them. but also knowing u cant and thinking "Now i tremble in your arms
    But what could beat the harms" i think this song is great and i can totally relate to it.

    General CommentThis song really means so much to me. It describes perfectly the feelings we all have, that one person we truly loved and lost wants to come back in your life, and there is nothing more that you could possibly ask for, but you know in your heart it isnt right, and you cant face the pain again, but something wont let you let go....What do you do???

    General CommentI think this is about unrequited love and how you keep spending time in that someone’s company even though it causes you pain because they don’t want you.
