i tried leaving you at home
but every thought returns to you
my head it seems to roam
no matter what i do


you know it's late right now
and every song sings of us
i guess these singers know somehow
and my life they must discuss
Chorus:
but i left the pictures of you behind
because i didn't want to dwell on you
but even the streets speak your name out here
and last nights movie too


the mountains now in the rearview
as the tired road creeps on and on
perhaps i'll leave you in colorado
with this monday morning fog


but the pictures await me back home
and there the streets whisper, whisper your name
escape it seems impossible sometimes
and i'm the one to blame


(chorus)

I tried leaving you behind
but you wouldn't stay

    General CommentMy boyfriend recently broke up with me because he felt like he needed to get out of here. We met a week ago so he could tell me about his move and he couldn't even look at me...he would start to cry. He still loves me but he thinks this is what he needs to do. We're both from Colorado, and he's moving to the east coast.

    I pray this is the song he sings when he gets there.
