Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

All this time I've never let you go
And ever since chains that had kept you into holding down my soul
I set you up, I gave you life
I try to act up fine, and
Now you knock me down, you shut me out
And I can see it in your eyes!
So, how 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

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
Yet the snow's underground or underneath myself,
For me to leave it down the road
I've been all around the world,
But got nowhere to go
I give into this lonely life, and you can't change
When I saw, leaving
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Leave it alone

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

The ghosts are on the green
Each and every night
Oh the distant light
Is 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

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Could it all be over now?
We've seen it all the while
There's no dimension to the clouds
And the moon and world around
That's the heart of all my pain
'Cause I don't wanna go
Oh the distant light
In a hue we can't describe, still we know

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
