I'm confusing the meaning of a verb "LEAVE". They can reveal the opposite meaning. For example, He leaves in the dark. Meaning 1: OUT of LEAVE from the sentence above is intransitive verb which means 'set out'. (ref: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/leave ) So, the sentence converts into He set out in the dark. = He goes OUT OF the dark. Meaning 2: TO (=leave FOR) Never leave in the dark like Anakin Sky walk. A word from lyrics XV – Jedi Knight. (ref: http://rapgenius.com/Xv-jedi-knight-lyrics#note-851566 ) Leave from above lyrics means "Go for" or "Go to" Does it depend on the context?
