Lyrics:

Leaving Familiar
Here I go leaving familiar, I've known her for such a long time.
Been stuck in my ways what more can I say
Familiar you're no friend of mine.

We swam against the tide and we always took pride
In knowing each other so fine.
Then we got lazy, I must have gone crazy
The whole world was passing me by.
Here I am leaving familiar behind. Here I am leaving familiar behind.

Here I go leaving familiar, I guess for whatever it's worth.
I'll miss you sometimes but you're no friend of mine
Familiar you're worse than a curse.

We stood hand in hand while we walked through our plan.
Together we swore hope to die
Then we got lazy, the future got hazy
The whole world was passing me by.
Here I am leaving familiar behind. Here I am leaving familiar behind.

Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute familiar I'm in it
And I can't say why things change
But I know that they're changing today.

Cause here I go leaving familiar
I'm shaking the world that I know
Familiar you're kind but I'm leaving behind
The things I know need letting go.

Here I am leaving familiar. Here I am leaving familiar.
Here I am leaving familiar. Here I am leaving familiar behind.
