lyrics

I want to say everything unfiltered
But I worry about you taking everything at face-value
So write this down: I'm leaving town
I warned you that I'd see this through

Packed a full car, leave at daybreak
Was this the right choice?
Was this the right mistake?

You're upbeat as I vote with my feet
Does that mean you're coming too?
I left it for you to choose
