You couldn't even bring yourself

To stay, oh no
You had to go
Spoil it all
I know you had to go
Now I find these endlessly
Colourblind days
To fill
You never will

(Take this life)
Take this life
Take it all
In your hands
You were mine
I could smile
You understand, fine

Again
I dream
You come to me
(Come back to me)
And comfort me
But now I dream
Where did this time go
Where did this time go
Did your love go

I know
You have to go
Spoil it all
And now I know
You never will

(Take this life)
Take this life
Take it all
In your hands
You were mine
I could smile
You understand, fine

(Take this life)
Take this life
Take it all
In your hands
You were mine
I could smile
Again

Just what you said was cold advice
I discovered sticks go with knives
I discovered I could die in your chains
Still I feel, so won't you stay
Oh, babe

(Take this life)
Take this life
Take it all
In your hands
You were mine
I could smile
You understand, fine

(Take this life)
Take this life
Take it all
In your hands
You were mine
I could smile
Again
