Every Time I Leave You

Daddy won't be driving you this morning
8:07 flight is confirmed
Sleepy eyes will find the note I'll leave you
"Happy birthday, baby. I'll be calling you tonight"

Second celebration that I've missed now
Take some smiling pictures for me
Winding through the crowds I'll have tears in my eyes
I'll say a prayer for you tonight

Every time I leave you
I taste the hunger inside
Every time I leave you
I leave a piece of me behind
I leave a piece of me behind

Can't be going away much longer
You're the price I don't want to pay
Tell me that I'll have a chance to make it up to you
I'll be missing you tonight

Every time I leave you
I taste the hunger inside
Every time I leave you
I leave a piece of me behind
I leave a piece of me behind
