I put the locket that you gave me in a shoebox
With all my favorite high school pictures in a Ziploc
So when I think I'm by myself I know that I'm not

Thanks for the extra cash,
Please take good care of dad
And I promise you I'll call along the way

[Chorus]
Mama, don't you cry
I'm moving on, but know this ain't goodbye
We might be miles apart, I'll carry you in my heart
I'll send you kisses on the phone
But mama, I'm leaving home

In only four months, I'll be coming home for Christmas
I bet that all the time will fly, you know how it does.
Maybe I'll go and find a nice guy and fall in love
I'll do my best to make you proud
Keep my room the same for now
Just in case these big ol' dreams don't work out

[Chorus]

We knew this day would come
And as bad as we wanna hold on
We both know it's time to let go (let go)

Mama, don't you cry
I'm moving on, but know this ain't goodbye
Mama, don't you cry
I'm moving on, but know this ain't goodbye
We might be miles apart, I'll carry you in my heart
I'll send you kisses on the phone
But mama, I'm leaving home
I'm leaving home
I'm leaving home
