Just An Excuse

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Shooting Star (1978).

Why do you feel you'd be happy somewhere else
Why do you feel you're missing out all the time
Oh, if it hadn't been for your wife and children
You say you'd be off

Or is just an excuse
Or is just an excuse not to stay here

You're gonna leave, I don't believe it
You say you don't need me no more
I bet you're afraid to go
You say I tie you down, you've had enough of this town
And our fairweather friends

Or is just an excuse
Or is just an excuse not to stay here

You should reconsider if the grass is greener my dear
I left the door open
But you prefer to stay here, holding me near
You prefer to stay here, holding me near

Why do you feel I'm competing with you
It's not fair because it's not true
If you must find yourself, not in material wealth
I think you've found it

Oh, but it's just an excuse
Yes, it's just an excuse
Yes, it's just an excuse not to stay here
