Find a nail to hang your hat on
Go and get yourself a chair
If there's a little hope to fathom
Mr. Levon left it there

Don't imagine you can lose him
Just take the ribbons from your hair
Give your resistance to the darkness
Mr. Levon left it there
Mr. Levon left it there

There will be light, empty and flat
California under glass
Hold me tight and don't let go

You can believe your intuition
Yes, you have finally met your match
If everything you are is missing
Mr. Levon took it back

It could be halfway up to heaven
It could be right there down the hall
It doesn't matter if you are begging
Mr. Levon took it all
(Mr. Levon took it all)
Mr. Levon took it all

But there will be light, empty and flat
California under glass
Hold me tight and don't let go

There might be some place you can run to
Or maybe someone you could call
Just to tell them what it's come to
Mr. Levon took it all
(Mr. Levon took it all)

Mr. Levon took it all
(Mr. Levon)
Mr. Levon took it all
