I took a drive along the west bank of the shore
I thought of what you said and then I thought some more
You say your life is all but chiseled out in stone
And all you want is just a taste of the unknown

Think it was yesterday I called you on the phone
You say you need a change, I recognized the tone
Buy me a ticket please, to anywhere I'll go
I'm not saying what is right or what is wrong
I'm just thinking you've been hanging here too long

So why don't we just up and leave it all behind?
Maybe a change would ease your mind
For a time
Leave it all behind

What I really want to do is see you smile
Hear you talk and let me listen for a while
There's too much goin' on to keep it all inside
You try to whisper but you start to scream and shout
What you need is just a place to let it out

So why don't we just up and leave it all behind?
Maybe a change would ease your mind for a time
(Time)
We will see if there's a place that we can go
Someplace that no one else will know how to find
(Find)
Leave it all behind

(Tu tu too, tu tu too)
Try to whisper but you start to scream and shout
(Start to scream and shout)
(Start to scream and shout)
What you need is just a place to let it out
(Let it out)

So why don't we just up and leave it all behind?
Maybe a change would ease your mind for a time
(Time)
We will see if there's a place that we can go
Someplace that no one else will know how to find
Leave it all behind
