lyrics

Leave It Alone

Make a name for the silence you hate and call it something strange
'Cause you're the one with it all figured out, you don't think you need to change
so I'll leave you alone

Call him out as the boy starts to sing, he's broken, battered, and beat
And don't think of a thing to admire, no don't fall to retreat

and I'll leave it to time and watch it all wash away
these things that've been done
and after the ghosts of memories that are haunting us have gone
we can leave it alone

Lay it down like you have no regrets because this is just a game
And it's fine, make her carry all of the weight because only you feel the pain

and I'll leave it to time and watch it all wash away
these things that've been done
and after the ghosts of memories that are haunting us have gone

we can set the broken bones
and we'll bury the sticks and the stones
we can call it a house, not a home
and we'll leave it alone
