Leaving To Stay

Jonny Lang

I can't believe in what I've seen

I been forsaken. I been deceived

Cast aside and left behind

I can't believe my own eyes

I been waiting for the glory

Of the coming of the Lord

I heard a lot of stories

But all my prayers have been ignored

I been waiting in the wings

Between the ocean and the shore

But this time I'm leaving to stay

I'm walking away

I seen the red sky in the morning

I seen the low tide slipping away

I do believe I'll take warning

Taking my leave to stay



Like an angel afraid to fly

Like the last lonely rose hung on the vine
