“….With “If You’re Gonna Leave” (from my first CD “Of Life”), I looked around and realized just how many people were going “through the motions,” merely existing and not living. Admittedly, I’ve been there myself and know how difficult it can be to feel a sense of resolution and clarity. How many people are stuck in a cycle they want to get out of but feel they can’t, but a door is always there if they look for it, it’s just not always easy to see. I wrote this song with the hope that it would inspire and uplift. It is my sincerest hope that many doors open for you where there were once only walls.” – Leila
