I'm leaving by night, I'm leaving alone
I'm leaving it lie when you waken I'll be gone
I would not beg for me as I would not beg for you
Though I'd like to be the one to see you through

Every step you have taken disappears with the tide
You're torn up and shaken with changing your mind
You haven't got the grace to say you'll finally decide
And you haven't got the strength to stay and fight

Those people who surround you
Only want to see you weak enough to crawl
They'll lie for you, decide for you
And buy up all your rights and all your wrongs

And they'll try to stop your singing in the middle of your song
For they do not want you free and they do not make you strong
But only drag you down in the hole they're coming from

They say you are foolish in wanting the sun
Say you are selfish in learning to run
And they'll tell you that the darkness is a blessing in disguise
For you never have to notice if you're sighted or you're blind
And they'll do their best to keep you from the light

You're more than beginning, you're learning to fly
You feel like you're falling but it passes in time
I hate to see a friend go down in flames without a song
So I'm waiting by the doorway but I will not linger long

And I'm leaving by night, I'm leaving alone
I'm leaving it lie, when you waken I'll be gone
I would not beg for me as I could not beg for you
But I'd like to be the one to see you through
