GOING AWAY

I'm going away - leaving today -
all this worn-out, used-up, used-to-be.
There's nothing but a shell. Here's the truth to tell -
there's been many changes in me.

Sifting through the years -
not at all attached to where I've been -
I read a verse I wrote - one I like to quote -
seems like it flowed from someone else's pen.

Chorus
Leaving today - already on my way.
Got to find the new place I belong.
Nothing much to take. Nothing much to say.
Pouring my tomorrow in a song.

I don't know where it goes -
but I don't think it's strange.
Different , I suppose -
but I really need to change.

Goodbye - I wish you well -
person that I was.
The reason ? I can't tell.
I'm going - just because.

Chorus
Leaving today - already on my way.
Got to find the new place I belong.
Nothing much to take. Nothing much to say.
Pouring my tomorrow in a song.
