"Leaving" as written by and Steven Lee Olsen Carl Anthony Falk....
Watching the clock on the wall
Been a while since you called
I can't help but wait
It's late and I can't get no sleep

Something's different this time
It just doesn't feel right
Have we broken in two?
Am I really gonna lose you tonight?

You come walking in, tears in your eyes
Pretending like it's all right

But I know you're leaving
I know that smile
I can tell you've been crying
You're gonna say goodbye
I wish I could stop you
But you've made up your mind
Could beg you don't go
But I already know
You're leaving

Where does the time go between goodbye and hello?
How did we come to this?
Is there something we missed along the way?

With your bags at the door
Wanna pull you in close
And hold you once more
Even though

I know you're leaving
I know that smile
I can tell you've been crying
You're gonna say goodbye
I wish I could stop you
But you've made up your mind
Could beg you don't go
But I already know
I know you're leaving

Here come the sleepless nights
Here come the tears I'm gonna cry
Here comes the last goodbye
Leaving us behind
Oh this can't be right

I know you're leaving
I know that smile
I can tell you've been crying
You're gonna say goodbye
I wish I could stop you
But you've made up your mind
Could beg you don't go
But I already know
You're leaving
