Paroles From Me To You

Le - modifié le - Par .

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

Every step you have taken disappears with the tide
Youâ??re torn up and shaken with changing your mind
You havenâ??t got the grace to say
Youâ??ll finally decide
And you havenâ??t got the strength to stay to fight

Those people who surround you
Only want to see you weak enough to crawl
Theyâ??ll lie for you, decide for you
And buy up all your rights and all your wrongs
And theyâ??ll try to stop your singing
In the middle of your song
For they do not want you free
And they will not make you strong
But only drag you down in the hole theyâ??re coming from

They say you are foolish for wanting the sun
They call you selfish for learning to run
Theyâ??ll tell you that the darkness
Is a blessing in disguise?
You never have to notice if youâ??re sighted
Or youâ??re blind
And theyâ??ll do their best to keep you from the light

Youâ??re more than beginning, youâ??re learning to fly
Feels like youâ??re falling, but it passes in time
And I hate to see a friend go down
In flames without a song
So Iâ??m waiting by the doorway â?? I will not linger long

Iâ??m leaving by night, Iâ??m leaving alone
Leaving you lie, when you waken Iâ??ll be gone
I would not beg for me as I will not beg for you
But Iâ??d like to be the one to see you through
