"Leaving" as written by Jeffrey B. Atkins, Ashanti S. Douglas, Irving Domingo Lorenzo and Marcus Vest....
I'm leaving here today.
I'm gonna go real far away from here.
I'm gonna find a girl like the one I met in high school.
But she's not gonna get away this time.
I'm gonna keep her by my side.
Not gonna lose my grip on you.
I'm gonna somehow make it through this time.
Not gonna fuck up like I did back then.
Maybe I'll even fall in love again.

[Chorus] And when I try to make things right.
I always seem to lose the fight.
Can't seem to hold on to my life.
So I go on through the pain.
That's why I'm leaving here today.
Won't make it any other way.

Cigarettes & sleep are the only things that keep me from losing my mind maybe in time you'll know that.
Without you I am nothing I have always acted blind.
I'm never coming home because you left me all alone last night and you never even showed up in the morning.
And so I try to find a way to hold it in.
I guess you win this time.
Good friends are hard to find.

[Repeat Chorus]

    General Commentthis song is saying how she was the only one that made him make it through his days. then he fell in love with her and she left him. he doesnt want to go back to his house because it reminds of all the memories they have together so he'll go away so its not always on his mind. he also makes the point that good friends arent the easiest to find or in that case keep. It's hard to trust people and you always wind up trusting the wrong people

    General CommentI think this song is about when he was in high school, and he had alot of fun, good friends a girl friend, and great memories. but as he gets older, those good things end, and he realizes that hanging around his old home is just bringin him donw, so he want to leave, start over, and make a new life, and forget about how he was hurt...or whatver, but whatver this song is about, i love it!!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a girl who I meet in high school, dated for just over five years and eventually broke up with (mutally, well sorta'). Only since which I've never meet a girl like her, curiosity does kill the cat, in that I was curious of what else was out there beside her, now I know and maybe it'll be a long painful death for me...
