"Let Me Leave" as written by and Marc William/altman Broussard....
"How many times have I come to you?
How many times have you taken me in?
How have you never quite realized
That this will be nothing more than what it's been?

Why is that I return to the scene of a crime
Though there's nothing I need?
Between the moments that linger before us
Haven't you wondered why I always leave?

Let me, be who I am
Let me, leave while I can
You know love don't find this sort of man,
So just let me leave while I can

How many times have I come to you
Bleeding and broken and under attack?
How can you look in my eyes and my heart
And not see that there's something I lack?

Why is it that I'm as bad as I am
But I know that you'll never believe?
Why do you still love me
When all I have done is to lie and deceive?

Let me, be who I am
Let me, leave while I can
You know love don't find this sort of man,
So just let me leave while I can

Can't give you what you need,
And I'm so tired that I can't breathe
And I don't know if you can see,
But my ship is going down
And I tried my best to be a man,
So I'll set you free while I still can,
Cause I can't seem to change who I am

Let me, be who I am
Let me, leave while I can
You know love don't find this sort of man,
So just let me leave while I can

Yeah just,
Let me leave while I can
Let me leave, let me leave..."

    General CommentThis is definitely a song about a man who just can't commit and a woman who believes that there's still some hope between them. I think it's a well-crafted song. I like to think of this song related to Gavin's Song. Likely, it's of no relation but my theory does fit.

    General CommentThankfully artist can write from both a place of truth and an imagined situation. Marc is still happily married with 4 kids. Gotta love a stable home and family to come back to after being out on the road.
