    Lyrics »

On the crossroads just outside my hometown
Stand the refugees on borrowed time alone
Down the avenues of old familiar places
I just see it through the eyes of a stranger

And I leave it all behind
And walk away
And I leave it all behind
And donít look back
Just remember you were the child
When you left it all behind

Brave the city streets, soldier of the dawn
Share the lonely tears left for romantic souls
Stutter words like self respect and dignity
They donít seem to fit
When they mean poverty

And I leave it all behind
And walk away
And I leave it all behind
And donít look back
Oh, try to keep this child alive
So I left it all behind

Whatís a girl to do when she just canít forget
Like a debutante, who wears a party dress
Like a fool who finds it easier to laugh
And just when he has it all
He says thereís nothing left to have

And I leave it all behind
And walk away
Yeah, I leave it all behind
And donít look back
Oh, try to keep this heart alive
So I left it all behind

And I leave it all behind
And walk away
Oh, I leave it all behind
And I donít look back
Oh, just try to keep this dream alive
And leave it all behind.
