Hardened and Tempered

Sad songs dress pretty.

leavin' in the morning

Darling, I love you so, that's not why I have to go
I need to believe that I can stand on my own
I'm stepping out to come back home

You have to trust me that I won't do you wrong
I'm the one crying and you're still standing strong
I need to find what you see in me
There's no escape, this is my leap of faith

But I just don't know, when I'm coming home
I'm leaving in the morning

Darling, I love you so, that's not why I have to go
I need to believe that I can stand on my own
I'm stepping out to come back home

Love may be enough just to survive
But it takes more than love if we're going to thrive
And just surviving is never good enough
The ties that bind are patience, faith and trust

But I just don't know, when I'm coming home
I'm leaving in the morning

Darling, I love you so, that's not why I have to go
I need to believe that I can stand on my own
I'm stepping out to come back home

Down the line, we'll be happy for ourselves
Down the line we will go
Down the line we'll be happy for ourselves
When I know that I'm coming home
I'm leaving in the morning

Darling, I love you so, that's not why I have to go
I need to believe that I can stand on my own
I'm stepping out to come back home
