Sister Hazel

Sister Hazel is an alternative rock band from Gainesville, Florida, whose style also blends elements of folk rock, pop, classic rock 'n' roll and southern rock. Their music is characterized by highly melodic tunes and prominent harmonies. Most of their songs have optimistic lyrics. The band's instrumentation often features abrupt shifts among electric, acoustic and a cappella, with striking use of tacets. Though often described as alternative, Sister Hazel leans toward an upbeat sound and away from the clashing punk discordance often associated with the alternative rock genre. more »

I'll go away
I'll go on my wordless way
Don't say anything
Say nothing, just leave me. 

I've been merely, an actor
In your painful play.
But I feel too much to stay.
Just cast me out. 

[Chorus]
You can have the pictures 
You can have the jacked up car.
And take the book on meditation
I'll just take home what I brought, 
My, big painted velvet Elvis... 

Well take it away
Take it all away
Don't leave anything
Leave nothing, except me 

'Cause I've been sadly misinformed
I thought it mattered a little more than this
I wish I was a thousand miles away... 

[Chorus] 

Well I'm frozen here
Caged in silence
It's better that I 
Regret these words 
Than to stand aside 
And watch your tragic
Storyline unfold...
Just let me go 

[Chorus]

Well you took my heart 
And you took my soul
And you used me,
I've had plenty of that.
It gets harder and harder
And farther and farther
From what I need for me.
