Let's Look Back One More Time, And "Leave It All Behind"

Will home be how I remembered? Will they take me back?

Song 8: Leave It All Behind
 

My friend we are finally at the point where we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The finish line is within sight, but you get your last rush of desire to quit and go back home. Don't stop now!

Hey guys Steve here again. As fall approached out in Ohio, I couldn't help but think about all the fun fall activities I used to do with my friends and family. Man I missed them, and I hadn't been home in so long. Maybe it was the chill of the fall air making its way in, but I really want to quit, I'll be honest. My mind started playing tricks on me and I wondered could things still even be the same if I went back home? Would they still accept me?

"I wana know, if I left this place could I come back home into our old ways? Yeah, let's rewind one more time"

- Leave It All Behind

Meaning Behind the Song

"Leave It All Behind" is about hitting a point in your journey where you really start to feel homesick, and very realistically think about quitting and going home. You start to wonder if you will be able to go back to the way things were if you go back. Will your friends still accept you? Will they still want to spend time with you? Will family be resentful? Ultimately, you decide not to quit just yet 💙

-Steve

Lyrics:

Left it in Pittsburgh
I replayed it all in my head
Turnpikes and Freeways
I don't ever want to forget
Just like the summer
I never want you to end
Put you on replay
I'll watch it again and again

Cuz I wanna know
If I left this place
Could I come back home
Into our old ways?
Yeah, let's rewind one more time
And leave it all behind
And leave it all behind

Dancing like embers
Keeping me warm in my head
I ran to forget you
But oh here you are once again
A chill with the season
I'm desperate for reasons to stay
Just like the leaves change
Strip me and take me away

Cuz I wanna know
If I left this place
Could I come back home
Into our old ways?
Yeah, let's rewind one more time
And leave it all behind
And leave it all behind

I wanted to leave it alone
And find my place out in the snow
But something keeps pulling me back
Again again
I wanted to leave it alone
And find my place out in the snow
But something keeps pulling me back
Again again

Cuz I wanna know
If I left this place
Could I come back home
Into our old ways?
Yeah, let's rewind one more time
And leave it all behind
And leave it all behind
