You're The Reason I'm Leaving Lyrics

by Franz Ferdinand

Some granite wall numbs our bones, numbs our all
As we sit on skinny hands nothing to say, nothing at all
I don't know you and I, I don't want to
You're so awkward just like me but I don't care

You're the reason I'm leaving
You're the reason I'm leaving
And by leaving, we don't stop living you know

I'd no idea that in four years
I'd be hanging from a beam behind the door of number ten
Singing, well fare thee well, fare thee well, fare thee well
I am leaving, yes I leave it all to you

You're the reason I'm leaving
And you're the reason I'm leaving
And by leaving, we don't stop living you know

I'm the reason you're leaving
You're the reason I'm leaving
And by leaving, we don't stop living you know

As we ride along under an optimistic sun
The radio sings that 'Everybody' song by REM
And here I am fighting, fighting, yes I'm fighting not to cry
And that's another reason why I oughtta hate you like I do
Well like I do, well like I do

You're the reason I'm leaving
You're the reason I'm leaving
And by leaving, we don't stop living you know

I'm the reason you're leaving
No I'm the reason you're leaving
And we're leaving, we don't stop living you know
