Story

The twenty something age is a time of new beginnings.  But often that means making difficult choices, be it for work, school or simply to travel, explore life...  It often means leaving some one behind, being let go, letting your self go.

Lyrics

Half an hour out

And eight more up ahead

The music should be loud

But I turned it off instead

 

Into the silence I descend

Lost in thought in the purr of the engine

 

I’m Leaving LA

Off to greener skyline

I’m gonna capture

My fruit on the vine

You’re the one who told me

Seek and you will find

How was I to know

Leaving LA

Meant letting me go

 

The rolling hills of Highway 5

Have turned into the flat

My eyes are on the road

But my heart is turning back

 

But for what, what would happen then

I can’t bear another long, sad goodbye again

 

Chorus repeat

 

Bridge

I keep hearing you say

You’re so behind me

 

Cause in the rearview mirror

Is the wisdom of your way

I knew you couldn’t come

You didn’t ask me to stay

 

And for that, I love you even more

For giving me freedom with an open door

 

I’m Leaving LA

Off to greener skyline

I’m gonna capture

My fruit on the vine

You’re the one who told me

Seek and you will find

How was I to know

Leaving LA

Meant letting me go…off to greener skyline

Letting me go…seek and you find

You’re letting me go
