"Leavin'" as written by and Hugh X Lewis....
I fell asleep then I woke up from my dream yeah
I looked around but it wasn't what it seemed yeah
'Cause it's time for me to make a change yeah
'Cause it's time for me to rearrange yeah

Something's callin' out from under cover and
I'm free now
I'm leavin'
Something's callin' time for some discoverin'
I'm free now
I'm leavin'
I'm leavin'

I made a promise I'd be honest 'til the very end
I tried to be myself but you were still not listenin'
You don't notice me 'cause I don't fool around
I don't wanna be in your in-crowd (in your in-crowd)

Something's callin' out from under cover and
I'm free now
I'm leavin'
Something's callin' time for some discoverin'
I'm free now
I'm leavin'
I'm leavin'

Time to go
Time to go
So you don't know me very well right now
You try to change me and you stress me out
One day we'll find out this is all a phase
I am losing 'cause I've overstayed

Something's callin' me
Something's callin' me

Something's callin' out from under cover and
I'm free now
I'm leavin'
Something's callin' time for some discoverin'
I'm free now
I'm leavin'
I'm leavin'

    ---The love she onee knew was a dream.
    When she woke up, she realized her reality & that it wasn't what it
    had first seemed to be
    ---Once she realized this, she decides to make a change for the better in her life.


    "Something's callin' out from under cover and

    ---Something is calling her to be out of that relationship/situation
    She is listening to that calling.
    ---Leaving would set her free, set her free of whatever was tying her down.
    It would give her a chance to discover something, anything new about herself or the world.


    "I made a promise I'd be honest 'til the very end
    I tried to be myself but you were still not listenin'
    You don't notice me 'cause I don't fool around
    I don't wanna be in your in-crowd (in your in-crowd) "

    ---She made a promise to herself that she would be honest and truthful
    thoughout the process.
    She tried to do that by being herself, but she wasn't impressive enough to hold anyone's attention there.
    ---She realizes the only reason she gets no attention is because she doesn't act a fool like everyone else around her. Who she is is not what they want.
    She doesn't 'fit' in with their crowd...but she doesn't want to either!


    "Something's callin' out from under cover and
    I'm free now
    I'm leavin'
    Something's callin' time for some discoverin'
    I'm free now

    "Time to go...

    ---She knows its time to go
    ---Obviously, the people she is around do not know her at all.
    She knows they tried to change her & it's stressed her out.
    ---One day, this will behind her. She will think of it as only a temporary phase and lasp of judgement.
    She is losing this battle between her and whoever or whatever because she's been in it for too long. She can't win this one, she has to walk away from it before it gets the best of her.

    "Something's callin' me...
    Something's callin' me...
