Weekend away
I really needed this time
To fade away
I never wanted more than now
To go away
To evade day-to-day life
Throw it away
Throw it all far behind me
For a while
For a while

Far from home I will stay
Forget what's happening back where
I work and play
I'm sick of dealing, though it's
Hard to portray
Things will not change, but be
Forever clichéd
But I accept that
I'm just gone for a while
For a while

It's not hard to convey
What good this is in going
A separate way
Even if only for a
Night and a day
It's good to come home, but be
That as it may
It feels good to leave here
For awhile
For awhile
