I must love leaving, I am done
I have tried and all of this time
I don't forget your laughter
I don't forget your tears
I did not burn the orchard
I did not run, I crawled from you

I must love leaving, I have seen
In your eyes a failing light
I don't pretend to hate you
I do not wish to disgrace you
I'll take the flood of your secrets
I'll wade in there and I'll search for you, search for you

Take these arms, take these arms
All they ever held was lead and soot
Take this heart, take this heart
It's never worked like it should
Take these legs, take these legs
They are far too short on pride
Take this mouth, take this mouth
All it ever sold were the truest lies

I must love leaving, I am gone
I retired and all of this time
I don't forget your laughter
I don't forget your tears
I did not burn the orchard
I did not run, I crawled back to you, back to you

Take these arms, take these arms
All they ever held was lead and soot
Take this heart, take this heart
It's never worked like it should
Take these legs, take these legs
They are far too short on pride
Take this mouth, take this mouth
All it ever sold were the truest lies
Take this mouth, take this mouth
All it ever sold were the truest lies
Take this soul, take this soul
It just moans and moans and moans and cries
