lyrics

The best reason to visit Winnipeg,
(Well, the one that I've been telling you)
Is to see the world, to look for something new.
But if I never come back again,
Then you'll know it's 'cause I've been trying to forget you,
And all of the stress you put me through.

I had a plan to visit Winnipeg,
To escape without telling you,
And later mention how it's just something I had to do.
"There's a whole world," I'd often say to you,
"I cannot miss my opportunity to see what else is there,
To look for something new."
And now you know that was a half truth,
Now you know it's 'cause I've been desperate to leave you,
And all the distress you lead me to.

I've been talking for so long,
About growing up and settling down.
It's not how I pictured, and now I want out.

We can be free again once I'm in Winnipeg.
Well, that's just what I'll be telling you,
When you ask how I am, when you're with someone new.
'Cause what I've done is not undoable.
I can never go back to trying to forget you,
And all the mistakes I made for you.

It's not how I pictured, and now I want out.

The best reason to visit Winnipeg,
(Well, the one that I've been telling you)
Is to see the world; to look for something new.
But if I never come back again,
You'll know it's 'cause I've been trying to forget you,
And all the mistakes I made for you.
