If I Don't Leave Here Now - Indigo Girls

They say if it ever was it's in there still
You can dig and fill and never will be full
Trying to get that good again

Your last fifth of jack or cigarette
The time you be the farm before you lost it all
You want that feeling

Back you go against the wind and good advice
Killing yourself to stop from running out of life

But if I don't leave here now
I will never get out of this place
Baby believe me now
There's no dragon to chase
Even looking at your face
In front of me

If there ever was one there could be two
You and you and you a blue sky could be bluer
A whiter shade of white
But while you pour it on you pour it out
You empty everything you might have saved instead
For your loneliest night

Back you go against the wind and good advice
Killing yourself to stop from running out of life

But if I don't leave here now
I will never get out of this place
Baby believe me now
There's no dragon to chase
Even looking at your face
In front of me

And when it hits the papers
The tongues start wagging like it can't be happening
The doctors giveth and they taketh away
And when they do you'll find you stand up everyman
Goes looking for his heroin
It happens every day
Around every bend
Again and again
