Voices Callin...
Me home where I belong
And I'm longin...
To make myself that strong
And I come to you
Every night in my head...
And I left home so long ago...
And it's time to make amends.

When I left you
I was just a child
Now I need you
But I've gone five hundred miles
And I'll find a way
Back into your arms
But I've been gone for far too long
To waver in your charms

Hey, I'm goin away
From the footlights here that blind me
Hey, what's that you say?
I'm leavin you behind me!

My name is Mary Donnel and I'm twenty-one today
Got my walkin papers and there's nothin you can say
I'm sick of this one way town, the farms and families too
I need to find a better life, and I don't need you!

Hey, I'm goin away
From the footlights here that blind me
Hey, what's that you say?
I'm leavin you behind me!

Now I'm married from the south side, and I just turned twenty-two
Workin tables at the Black Dog and wearin out my shoes
And I guess that gettin grabbed is all I'm qualified to do
I need to find a better life where I don't need you!

Hey, I'm goin away
I'm leavin you behind me
Hey, what's that you say?
Your ties will never bind me!

All my life, all my life
I've wanted something I can't have
All this time, all my time
Has been wasted
SO!

Now I'm just plain Mary and I think I'm twenty-four
Walked these streets for two years now, it seems like ten or more
I'm petrified and I'm positive, and I don't know what to do
Except to find a better life where I don't need you.

Hey, I'm goin away
From the footlights here that blind me
Hey, what's that you say?
There's nothin left inside me

Hey, I'm goin away
Some place you won't find me
Hey, what's that you say?
These ties will never find me

Hey, I'm goin away
I'm leavin you behind me
Hey, what's that you say?
No one can deny me!
