​Leaving To Stay

This song is by Jonny Lang and appears on the album Wander This World (1998).

I can't believe what I've seen.
I've been forsaken; I've been deceived.
Cast aside and left behind
'Til I can't believe my own eyes

I've been waiting for the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
I've heard a, a lot of stories
But my prayers have been ignored
I been waiting in the wings
Between the ocean and the shore
But this time I'm leaving to stay
I'm fallin' away

I seen the red sky up in the morning
I seen the low tide slippin' away
I do believe I'll take a warning
Takin' my leave to stay

I've been waiting for the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
I've heard a, a lot of stories
But my prayers have been ignored
I been waiting in the wings
Between the ocean and the shore
But this time I'm leaving to stay
I'm fallin' away

(Guitar Solo)

Like an angel afraid to fly
Like the last lonely rose up hangin' on the vine

I've been waiting for the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
I've heard a, a lot of stories
But my prayers have been ignored
I been waiting in the wings
Between the ocean and the shore
But this time I'm leaving to stay

Well I've been waiting for the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
I've heard a lot of stories
But my prayers have been ignored
I been waiting in the wings
Between the ocean and the shore
But this time I'm leaving to stay
I'm fallin' away
Fallin' away
