Lyrics

Leaver of Men

Written By: Jonny Gray

Dirty pickpocket you've stolen from my soul
seems you feel in love with a girl i use to know
Now I'm not saying its your fault but summer is
over and i'll be coming home

Shes A Leaver of Men she knows what she wants
but doesn't understand Shes a Leaver of Men gonna
do it all over again

Stingy back peddler you cant have it both ways
You gotta choose right now and I want to hear you say
Your my Lover my Jesus my Friend Gonna do it all over again

Shes A Leaver of Men she knows what she wants
but doesn't understand Shes a Leaver of Men gonna
do it all over again

Proud and short sided i know just how we are
we gotta stop right now before we go to far
I'd be crazy and out of my head to do it all over again

Shes A Leaver of Men she knows what she wants
but doesn't understand Shes a Leaver of Men gonna
do it all over again
