Leave It Alone Lyrics

by Broken Bells

Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
All this time I'd never let you go,
And now the same chains that I kept you in they're
holding down my soul
I set you up, I gave you life,
I dragged you out the fire,
and now you knocked me down, you shut me out,
And I can see it in your eyes!
Somehow you got it in your head,
That you can make it on your own!
You were sheltered, loved and fed,
But you just couldn't leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Well your heart was here,
resting on my lap
And I'd do it all again,
But I'm never coming back!
Well I know I'm lying,
lying in the cold
Yeah, there's snow on the ground, and if I know myself,
I'll be leaving down the road
I've been all around the world,
But I got nowhere to go,
I gave into this lonely life,
and you can't change me now, so leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
The ghosts are on the green, each and every night
oh, the distant light
that's the hardest part to take,
that's the heart of all my pain,
lying in the cold,
oh, the distant light
in a hue we can't describe
still we know
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
could it all be over now
we've seen it all the while
there's no dimension to the clouds
the moon and world around
that's the heart of all my pain
cause I don't want to go
oh, the distant light
in a hue we can't describe
still we know
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
Uuuu uuuu uuuuh
