Lyrics

Time For The Leaving - Linda S Cullum


The time is here for the leaving
A restless feeling in my soul
My spirit's ready for the being
In the state of go

I get so confused in the position
Of never knowing which way is up or down
But I know it's time for a transition
Be it now

If your energy wire is shorting
And sparks are flying everywhere
And thoughts of your mind are distorting
And the pages of your life begin to tear

Then the time is here for the leaving
Disregard the fears that you hold
Put your thoughts away for safekeeping
And just go

You've been so damn crazy for staying
Letting things build up all this time
Your familiar lines are so betraying
So leave them behind

Now if time seems too precious to you With its merciless sweep of the past
And its eager gift of the future
Which always seems to come much too fast

Then the time is here for the leaving
Let your tears dry out on the road
The well worn path is deceiving
Say the old
